The CORRE examination is designed for non-DO physicians or medical students applying to residency programs with osteopathic recognition. The foundation of introductory concepts assessed in CORRE is based on the osteopathic philosophy of whole-person health care, underlying structure-function relationships and the interdependence of body systems, self-healing and self-regulatory mechanisms, and the full scope of the osteopathic approach to patient care, including osteopathic manipulative medicine.

Dimension 1 Osteopathic Concepts and Philosophy: The foundation that defines the distinctive osteopathic approach to health care based on the unity of mind, body, and spirit and the interrelatedness of structure and function.
Dimension 2 Osteopathic Diagnosis: The examination of a patient with emphasis on the neuromusculoskeletal system, including the diagnosis of somatic dysfunction and its role in visceral disease processes.
Dimension 3 Osteopathic Treatment Methods: The therapeutic application of manual techniques designed to improve disorders of physiologic function and homeostasis resulting from somatic dysfunction.
