Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Degree
PCOM DO Program
Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine has a storied history as a premier osteopathic medical school spanning more than a century. Our institution
has a rich tradition of training and placing DOs in primary and specialty care. At
the core of the student experience are accomplished, expert faculty members who provide
the foundation for rigorous instruction.
PCOM's DO program alumni include board-certified specialists, academic leaders and
educators, and recognized practitioners and researchers. These osteopathic physicians
contribute to the health and health policy of communities throughout the nation—including
those in disadvantaged rural areas and in regions especially affected by shortages
of primary care physicians.
The College was among the first to adopt innovative high-tech patient simulators as well as to engage standardized patient actors, providing students in the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine program with experiential
learning and proficiency modalities reflective of actual clinical procedure and practice.
Sponsored research projects promote opportunities for collaborative research. And
a commitment to community service is evident in outreach programs as well as training
at PCOM's Healthcare Centers, which primarily benefit urban Philadelphia locales.
