Introducing the Newest Osteopathic Principles & Practice Qbank

July 3, 2023
With one in 4 medical school students attending an osteopathic medical school in 2023, a growing need for specialized DO content has emerged in medical education. Introducing Rosh Review’s first Qbank designed for DO students and residents: the Osteopathic Principles & Practice (OPP) Qbank, authored and peer-reviewed by osteopathic physicians.

Who is the Osteopathic Principles & Practice Qbank for?

The Rosh Review Osteopathic Principles & Practice Qbank was created specifically for DO students and residents. For DO residents preparing for AOA board certification, this Qbank will help you prepare for the Principles & Practice portion of your exam.

This Qbank is for you if you’re looking to:

  • Build your foundation in the core principles of osteopathic medicine
  • Learn to recognize and diagnose somatic dysfunctions
  • Perfect your understanding and skills in a wide range of OMM techniques

How many questions are in the Osteopathic Principles & Practice Qbank?

The Qbank contains 200 practice questions aligned with the American Osteopathic Association Board Certification format, authored and peer-reviewed by osteopathic physicians.

Practice questions cover the following topics:

  • Basic Science Foundations
  • Direct Treatment Modalities
  • Indirect Treatment Modalities
  • Mixed Direct/Indirect Treatment Modalities
  • Osteopathic Structural Examination
  • Other Osteopathic Manipulative Treatments

What do Rosh Review practice questions look like?

Each Rosh Review question includes multiple-choice questions, teaching images, detailed explanations for correct and incorrect answers, One Step Further questions to extend your knowledge, hyperlinked references, and more.

View a sample question below:

A 50-year-old man presents to your office with left elbow pain. The patient was walking and fell 4 days ago. He broke his fall with his pronated hand as he touched the ground. He was not injured and continued his walk, but he still has pain in his elbow. When examining his elbow, which of the following will be the most likely pathology of the radial head?

  1. Anterior glide restriction
  2. Medial glide restriction
  3. Posterior glide restriction
  4. Radial head subluxation

Correct answer: A

Radial head motion is directly linked to the wrist position. When the wrist is in a pronated position, the distal radius will be in an anterior and medial position. A reciprocal motion of the radial head (proximal radius) happens at the same time, and it will glide posteriorly. Motion also occurs in the opposite direction. When the wrist is in a supinated position, the distal radius is in a posterior position, and the radial head glides anteriorly. This patient fell on his pronated hand, putting his radial head in a posterior glide. Therefore, the restricted position of the radial head will be the opposite, in an anterior glide restriction.

Posterior glide restriction (C) happens when a patient falls backward and lands on their supinated hand. The radial head will be in an anterior glide, and the restriction will be in the opposite direction. Radial head subluxation (D) occurs more in infants and younger patients when their arms are pulled and the radial head slips under the annular ligament. Medial glide restriction (B) is not a common radial head motion pathology due to its anatomical attachments.

One Step Further Question

Q: What nerve is most likely to be damaged in a humeral fracture?

A: Radial nerve.
