Osteopathic Medical Program 
PCOM Georgia

Since 2005, PCOM Georgia has trained Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) students from Georgia and the surrounding states. Our goal is to prepare students for excellence in the practice of osteopathic medicine.

PCOM Georgia is proud to celebrate a 100% postgraduate placement rate for the Class of 2024. Additionally, 39% of the graduating class placed within the state of Georgia.

As a PCOM Georgia medical 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 them. We encourage our students to adopt a "Doctor from Day One" mindset as they work to meet their professional and educational goals.

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


“Not only did PCOM Georgia help me become a physician, but I also learned how to grow as an effective communicator and leader. My experience in clinical learning and extracurricular activities will allow me to become a collaborative member of any team I join.”

The osteopathic medicine curriculum combines lectures and applied, firsthand learning exercises to instruct students in patient care and clinical science principles. Our medical students regularly work with simulation equipment and live patient actors to gain invaluable experience in clinical procedures and treatments.

As a student in PCOM Georgia's DO program, you will learn anatomy, physiology, microbiology, pharmacology, clinical medicine and more in a cohesive, interdisciplinary fashion during your first and second years. As a third- and fourth-year student, you'll 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. Through participation in rounds, lectures, conferences, morning reports and case presentations, you will develop skills in history taking, physical examination, differential diagnosis as well as invasive and non-invasive procedures.
