Dutch Society of Musculoskeletal Medicine


The Dutch Society of Musculoskeltal Medicine is extraordinary member of ESSOMM (European Scientific Society of Manual Medicine). As soon as the Dutch Society has 100 members physician specialists and 300 hours education of musculoskeletal medicine (=30 ECTS) we will be ordinary member.


Our CAS/DAS education did make a start on September 7th-2016 at SOMT University Amersfoort. The programm was admitted in June 2016 by the educational committee of the department manual therapy of the 'Vrije Universiteit Brussel' (Prof Dr A. Scafoglieri).


The ESSOMM is an "umbrella organisation" of scientific societies concerning manual medicine exclusively for physician specialists in Europe. It is narrowly attached to the FIMM. See for more information http://www.essomm.eu
