Philip Heywood
Philip Heywood
Executive Director , Northeast Osteopathic Medical Education Network
Philip A. Heywood is the Executive Director of the Northeast Osteopathic Medical Education Network (NEOMEN), the Osteopathic Post Doctoral Teaching Institute (OPTI) most closely aligned with the University Of New England College Of Medicine. An OPTI is a community -based training consortium comprised of at least one college of Osteopathic medicine and one or more hospitals. An OPTI provides quality assurance for the AOA approved postdoctoral training program and acts as the formal sponsor for that education. It allows for sharing of curriculum across training sites, manages the compliance functions, and works as a sharing forum for Program Directors and Directors of Medical Education. OPTI’s encourage research opportunities and provide training for those programs that may not have enough local resources--this is typically Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment courses, system based knowledge, or subject matter sui generis to the program. As many Osteopathic residencies exist in Community hospitals the added weight of a consortium of other like minded institutions helps bootstrap less well resourced institutions. There are 27 OPTI's (the number is always in flux as they merge, fade, et cetera) nationwide and NEOMEN manages over 400 graduate medical education slots at 15 sites across the northeast. Prior to his work with NEOMEN, Phil was a Senior Executive with several hospitals within Massachusetts and the Director of Network Development and Physician Services for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of MA. A Northwestern University alumnus, with graduate work at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Phil is currently completing an MS at UNECOM. The proud Dad of three great children who are now thinking of college themselves and live in Massachusetts, he resides in lovely Cape Porpoise, Maine, where he looks out on the sea and reminds himself that as a Montanan and a sea sick survivor, looking is all he should ever do.
