GA-PCOM History

Georgia Campus - Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (GA-PCOM) was established in 2005 to help fill the need for more physicians and other health professionals in Georgia and the surrounding states. Located in Suwanee, Georgia, GA-PCOM encourages graduates to serve where the need is greatest—inner cities and rural areas with severe physician shortages.

Since the first osteopathic medical program students began their studies in 2005, GA-PCOM has continued to expand its educational offerings. The Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences program launched in the 2006-2007 academic year and the PCOM School of Pharmacy opened at the Georgia Campus in 2010. In 2016, the College opened a distant campus location of PCOM’s Physician Assistant Studies (MS) program.  

A physical therapy education program is currently under development. If candidacy status is granted, GA-PCOM plans to admit its first group of students to the program in June 2018.
