Security and Public Safety

Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, in compliance with the federal Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990, is pleased to provide security information to individuals requesting such information at our Pennsylvania and Georgia locations.

Student applicants for admission, newly hired employees, students, full- and part-time employees and medical professionals are especially invited to share this data.

Founded in 1899, PCOM has been located at six sites from Center City Philadelphia westward. The present location, 4170 City Avenue, has been the home of our Pennsylvania campus since 1968. In 2004, PCOM Georgia, located at 625 Old Peachtree Road in Suwanee, Georgia, was established.

The Philadelphia campus is a community of about 1,700 students and more than 500 employees. The Suwanee, Georgia campus has about 1,100 students and 140 employees. There are no residence halls on either campus; students at both locations arrange for their own living accommodations nearby.

Three Philadelphia healthcare centers are protected by a staff of security personnel and electronic surveillance. Staffed posts throughout each campus ensure 24-hour protection. In addition, the College conducts fire drills as part of its public safety responsibilities.
