Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine has a storied history as a premier osteopathic medical school spanning more than 110 years. Our institution has a rich tradition of training and placing DOs in primary and specialty care. At the core of the student experience are accomplished, expert faculty members who provide the foundation for rigorous instruction.
PCOM's more than 12,000 alumni include board-certified specialists, academic leaders and educators, and recognized practitioners and researchers. These osteopathic physicians contribute to the health and health policy of communities throughout the nation -- including those in disadvantaged rural areas and in regions especially affected by shortages of primary care physicians.
The College was among the first to adopt innovative high-tech patient simulators as well as to engage standardized patient actors, providing students with experiential learning and proficiency modalities reflective of actual clinical procedure and practice. Sponsored research projects promote opportunities for collaborative research. And a commitment to community service is evident in outreach programs as well as training at PCOM's Healthcare Centers, which primarily benefit urban Philadelphia locales.
We offer the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree as well as a number of dual degree programs.
