Journal of Medical Insight is a peer-reviewed surgical video journal / virtual operating theatre. JOMI has published surgeons operating at Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Charite Hospital (in Berlin), Duke Medical Center, Rothman Institute, and many others and, at present, primarily focuses on general surgery, orthopaedics, orthopaedic trauma, neurosurgery, and head and neck surgery.
NOTE: Students can begin accessing JOMI immediately by creating an account on our website using their institutional email, and stating their affiliation with Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, Harlem Campus.
Osteopaths are regularly challenged by insurance companies, MDs and other healthcare professionals for not having any scientific research to back up osteopathic medicine. At the same time there is a lot of interesting research done all over the world that is relevant to osteopathy but hardly known.
In addition to this professional research work done by osteopaths and other medical practitioners many osteopathic students write a diploma thesis or Master thesis to finish their studies.
These theses - some of which are high quality work - are presented to a jury and a small audience, but after they have been accepted they are usually neither published nor easily accessible for osteopaths from outside of the respective school.
Our project's goal is to connect those two: The references and abstracts of osteopathic research projects are submitted to a database that is accessible via internet from all over the world for free, presenting osteopathic research not just to the osteopathic community but also to the interested public.
Osteopaths who are interested in the details of a specific research paper from our database could then mail-order a printed version from the respective university or school. Alternatively the full-text articles are sometimes made available as PDF.
OSTMED.DR® is an osteopathic medicine digital library created by a partnership between Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) and VTLS, Inc. in 2006. OSTMED.DR® builds upon OSTMED®, a bibliographic index to the literature of osteopathic medicine. OSTMED® was sponsored by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) and originally developed by the Gibson D. Lewis Health Science Library of the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth (UNTHSC-FW) along with the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine’s (KCOM) A.T. Still Memorial Library with contract approval in June 1997. While OSTMED® was a bibliographic citation index with abstracts only, OSTMED.DR® provides full text for much content within the repository, as well as being full-text indexed and searchable. OSTMED.DR® is endorsed by the AOA and AACOM and funded by VCOM through the Harvey W. Peters Foundation.
The goal of the project is to promote and facilitate research and scholarly activity in the osteopathic profession by providing ready access to the current osteopathic literature and heretofore hard to find resources, including historical documents. Be cautioned that some of the historical content may not be good science but is of value as a record of the history of osteopathic medicine. Determining the evidence value of content is the responsibility of the database user/researcher.
Books, core journals, selective journals, video and images are to be included. Content to date includes the 30,000+ citations imported from the original OSTMED® and the following:
Journal of Osteopathy v.4 (2, 4-12) 1897; v.5 (1-7) 1898
JAOA – 1950 to present
AOAJ - 1960 to present
