PCOM faculty, staff and students share their thoughts on why they decided to study and practice osteopathic medicine as part of National Osteopathic Medicine Week.
From April 16-22, PCOM will join hundreds of other osteopathic medical schools across the country to celebrate National Osteopathic Medicine (NOM) Week.
NOM Week brings the osteopathic medical profession together to focus on one common goal: increasing awareness of osteopathic medicine and DOs in communities across the country. At PCOM, several events are planned throughout the week to tout the institution’s osteopathic heritage and unique approach to education and patient care.
In addition, several PCOM students and faculty have shared why they decided to study and practice osteopathic medicine, in a series of videos titled #WHYIDO. The videos will be shared throughout the week on the College’s social media channels.
Founded in 1899, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine has trained more than 15,000 highly competent, caring physicians, health practitioners and behavioral scientists who practice a “whole person” approach, treating people, not just symptoms. PCOM offers the doctor of osteopathic medicine, doctor of pharmacy and doctor of psychology degrees and graduate programs in mental health counseling, school psychology, physician assistant studies, forensic medicine, organizational development and leadership, and biomedical sciences. Our students learn the importance of health promotion, education and service to the community and, through PCOM’s Healthcare Centers, provide care to the medically underserved populations in inner city and rural locations.
