I have proudly attained and re-certified my board certifications in both Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine and Family Medicine. In the late 80's and early 90's I earned both my B.S. degree in psychology and my D.O. degree from Michigan State University. In the mid-90s, I was fortunate enough to attain my Family Practice residency training from a combined program by MSU-COM (Michigan State University- College of Osteopathic Medicine) and St. John-Oakland Hospital.
Throughout my training I recognized I was called to serve as both a clinician and an educator. Currently, I am fortunate to be an associate professor at the founding college of osteopathy, A.T. Still University - Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM). As a lifelong learner I completed two teaching fellowships at MSU-COM. Most recently, I completed the year-long academic training program developed by the Costin Institute for Osteopathic Medical Educators.
At ATSU, my position enables me to educate physicians and physicians-in-training at all levels of medical education. My interests in research had inspired me to participate in a research fellowship at ATSU-KCOM in the late 1990s. Currently, I'm participating in several research projects, grants and professional articles at ATSU..
Finally, I've had the opportunity to author and publish a variety of articles on osteopathic philosophy and education. My early experiences in practice, my students and patients inspired me to write a textbook on the 'Normalization of Muscle Pain' and two books for patients: 'Healing & Anti-aging for Your Back & Neck Pain' and 'Your Guided Journey to a Happier Life'. The later two are available through links found at www.samjill.com .
