The quality assurance review program of military medicine has implications for civilian osteopathic medicine. Clinical monitors need to be developed that are based on the principles of osteopathy. Components of a quality assurance screening checklist for osteopathic manipulative treatment include credentials of the osteopathic physician, the diagnosis, either somatic dysfunction or other condition, the type of osteopathic manipulative treatment applied, and specific contraindications. A checklist applicable to osteopathic manipulative treatment that could be used by military and civilian sectors is suggested.
