As a Doctor of Osteopathic (DO) student at PCOM South Georgia, you’ll learn to treat the person, not just the disease.
Our curriculum emphasizes how injury or illness in one part of the body can impact another. This extra training in the interaction and integration of the neuromusculoskeletal system with other body systems—osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM)—provides our students with additional tools and skills to diagnose and treat patients.
Our curriculum combines lectures and hands-on, active learning exercises to engage and instruct students in osteopathic medicine and in basic and clinical science principles. Through the use of patient simulators and live patient actors, we provide students with invaluable experience in clinical procedure and practice.
As a student in PCOM South Georgia's DO program, you’ll learn anatomy, physiology, pathology, microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, clinical medicine and more in an integrated, interactive fashion during your first and second years. As a third- and fourth-year student, you’ll learn and work at hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities under the direction of experienced physicians in order to develop your clinical skills in all phases of patient care.
PCOM South Georgia is expected to open in August of 2019 with a class of 55 DO students.
