PCOM Georgia, formerly known as Georgia Campus – Philadelphia College of Osteopathic
Medicine (GA-PCOM), was established in 2005 to help fill the need for more physicians
and other health professionals in Georgia and the surrounding states. Located in Suwanee,
Georgia, PCOM Georgia encourages graduates to serve where the need is greatest—inner
cities and rural areas with severe physician shortages.
Since the first osteopathic medical program students began their studies in 2005, PCOM Georgia has continued to expand its educational
offerings. The Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences program launched in the 2006-2007 academic year and the PCOM School of Pharmacy opened in 2010. In 2016, the College opened a distant campus location of PCOM’s Physician Assistant Studies (MS) program.
In May 2018, the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program was granted Candidate for Accreditation status by the Commission on Accreditation
in Physical Therapy Education. PCOM Georgia admitted its first group of students to
the program in June 2018.
In 2019, Georgia Campus – Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (GA-PCOM) became
PCOM Georgia to reflect PCOM's new, cohesive identity system. The name change was implemented to simply and accurately describe the College's
presence in the state of Georgia and better speak to the breadth and depth of the
region the College serves.
