PCOM Georgia

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.

In 2022, PCOM Georgia expanded its program offerings with the MS in Medical Laboratory Science
