William James Brooks DO lecturing students on Osteopathic Manipulative Principles at a DO-Touch.Net event.

Throughout his career he has mentored many osteopathic and allopathic medical students and postgraduate physicians—locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally—both in his private clinics, in continuing education settings ranging from one-hour lectures to several-day seminars, and while employed at colleges of medicine in clinics, lectures, and labs. Physical/occupational therapists have also been students. (Please see his Curriculum Vitae for details.)


Reciprocally, he persistently strives to deepen and broaden his medical knowledge in general along with his specialty expertise.


A major goal for the remainder of his career is to intensely train physicians as well as physical/occupational therapists in the Functional Pathology of the Musculoskeletal System paradigm.

He has developed a Continuing Medical Education seminar designed to train primary care providers: Introduction to the Functional Pathology of the Musculoskeletal System (7 days: 3 & 1/2 days over 2 weekends separated by several weeks)
