Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine is committed to providing continuity in osteopathic medical education which begins on the first day of medical school and extends throughout internship and residency training.
PCOM MEDNet (Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institute - OPTI), an AOA-approved training consortium comprised of more than 40 hospitals, provides a wide array of internship and residency programs at affiliated sites in Pennsylvania, Georgia, New York, Alabama, Delaware and New Jersey.
OPTIs are academic sponsors and provide an enhanced quality assurance mechanism for all AOA-approved postdoctoral training programs. Partnerships and collaborations between academic medicine, hospitals and other community-based healthcare facilities are an integral part of the OPTI. As part of an ongoing educational assessment, AOA-approved internships and residencies are assessed on-site and OPTIs are reviewed regularly. This review includes a systematic self-study and annual reporting of data on accreditation procedures established by the Council on Postdoctoral Training and Bureau of Professional Education. The goal is to assure the highest quality osteopathic graduate medical education.
Through PCOM MEDNet, we deliver an integrated, coordinated curriculum which enables us to continue as a national leader in osteopathic medical education.
Up to six grants for a total of $15,000 are available to PCOM MEDNet members. Each grant is to support a prospective clinical investigation designed to develop data such that the study is complete or has the potential to facilitate development of a larger scale, multi-center trial for submission to an external funding agency.
