Georgia Campus 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 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 hopes to admit its first group of students to the program in June 2018.
