Office of the President 
Jay S. Feldstein, DO '81

An alumnus of Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Jay S. Feldstein, DO '81, has served as the institution's eighth president and chief executive officer since July 1, 2014.


During Dr. Feldstein's tenure, major institutional strategic initiatives set forth in PCOM 2020: A Strategic Vision have been achieved. These outcomes are highlighted in the PCOM 2020: Report on Our Accomplishments. Under his leadership, the College is now executing the next strategic plan—PCOM 2025—to advance PCOM's position of excellence.

  • In fiscal year 2023-24, PCOM investigators received over $8 million in external funding, with nine new grants and contracts awarded.
  • The Journal of Integrated Primary Care, PCOM’s first open-access, peer reviewed scientific journal, published its first edition in December 2023.
  • Each year, PCOM celebrates scientific discovery through Research Day at all three locations. In 2023, Research Day showcased 253 posters.
  • PCOM formed a strategic partnership with Organic Remedies in 2020 to study medicinal cannabis, focusing on its therapeutic potential for opioid management and the treatment of chronic pain, impact on behavioral health and quality of life, and trends in usage.
  • In 2019, PCOM psychology investigators were awarded a $5.5 million contract from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to study the effectiveness of psychosocial treatments for patients receiving treatment for opioid use disorder.
  • PCOM attained more than $15.2 million in commitments—the largest total raised for the fourth year in a row—and 80% of the amount contributed was allocated for strategic initiatives.
  • In January 2024, PCOM received the largest philanthropic commitment in its 125-year history. The eight-figure commitment by Howard A. Hassman, DO '83, advances PCOM and its strategic priorities and also serves as the cornerstone of the United & Ignited fundraising campaign.
  • United & Ignited, with a $65 million fundraising goal, focuses on accelerating academic excellence, expanding clinical opportunities and enhancing student experiences.

The PCOM Primary Care Innovation Fund focuses on investing in healthcare-related products and services related to primary care. Structured as a traditional venture capital fund to ultimately help grow the endowment of PCOM, the $5 million fund is focused on making investments in the range of $250,000 to $500,000.
