GA-PCOM Becomes PCOM GeorgiaFebruary 7, 2019
The Suwanee campus will begin the gradual process of changing its name to PCOM Georgia.
On Friday, February 8, Georgia Campus – Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine
(GA-PCOM) will begin the process of rolling out a new name: PCOM Georgia.
“The new name more simply and accurately describes the College’s presence in the state
and better speaks to the breadth and depth of the region the College serves,” Philadelphia
College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) President and CEO Jay S. Feldstein, DO '81, explained.
The day will include a celebration where students, faculty and staff members will
come together to share soup in newly branded mugs to mark the occasion. In an effort
to give back, community members are collecting cans of soup to be donated to a Gwinnett
County food bank.
According to Dr. Feldstein, “The name PCOM Georgia is reflective of our new cohesive
identity system that can grow with additional locations.”
PCOM Georgia’s new name is now more consistent with the names of PCOM—the degree-granting
institution—and of PCOM South Georgia, the College’s additional location. Dr. Feldstein explained that it will take some
time to fully reflect the new name on such items as signage, brochures and stationery.
“The launch is planned to be a soft launch, a gradual introduction of the change to
various markets,” he said.
