Osteopathic Medical Program 
PCOM Georgia

Since 2005, PCOM Georgia has trained Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) students from Georgia and the surrounding states. PCOM currently operates the only osteopathic medical school in Georgia.

The Suwanee campus is located just 27 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia. It features a state-of-the-art learning environment with instruction delivered by expert and accomplished faculty.

Our goal is to prepare students for excellence in the practice of osteopathic medicine. As a PCOM Georgia student, you will learn to gain insight into your patient's healthcare needs by looking beyond the person and discovering the social and economic factors that impact him or her. We encourage our students to adopt a "Doctor from Day One" mindset as they work to meet their professional and educational goals.

As a third- and fourth-year student, you’ll learn and work at hospitals and health clinics in the greater Atlanta area under the direction of accomplished physicians in order to develop your clinical skills in all aspects of patient care.
