When you select Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, you become an integral part of a patient care team.
Students who complete an elective rotation with PCOM will be provided with graduated responsibility in a challenging academic environment, working closely with PCOM residents and clinical faculty.
Providing quality medical education is at the core of PCOM's rich tradition. Our clinical faculty is committed to providing comprehensive training to third and fourth year medical students.
Through their clinical experience, students will have the opportunity to develop skills in bedside differential diagnosis and patient care management under supervision. Completing an elective rotation with PCOM will also provide students with the opportunity to experience the college's graduate medical education programs while considering future residency and fellowship training.
Students must apply for PCOM Student Electives with PCOM programs and teams via the application process described as on each rotation page below.
Students are not permitted to contact PCOM Program Student Elective sites or physicians directly and will not be approved to complete the requested rotation if the required application process is not followed.
Students accepted to complete a rotation will be responsible for their own housing, parking and meals.
