Fast Facts

GA–PCOM offers a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree, a Doctor of Pharmacy degree, a Master of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences and a Master of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies.


GA–PCOM enrolled its first class in 2005 in response to the acute need for more healthcare providers to serve the growing population of Georgia and the surrounding states. The College especially encourages graduates to serve where the need is greatest—inner cities and rural areas with severe physician shortages.


The College is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association; the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Education; and Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine School of Pharmacy’s Doctor of Pharmacy program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, 135 South LaSalle Street, Suite 4100, Chicago, IL 60503, 312/664-3575; FAX 312/664- 4652, web site The College also has approval from the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission.

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine Physician Assistant Program in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and approved a distant campus in Suwanee, Georgia. Both the main campus and distant campus programs are sponsored by Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.

Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be March 2018. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.
