Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine

Philadelphia, PA

For more than a century, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) has trained highly competent, caring physicians, health practitioners and behavioral scientists who practice a “whole person” approach — treating people, not just symptoms. More than 60 percent of PCOM osteopathic medicine graduates go on to practice in primary care.

At the main campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the branch campus in Suwanee, Georgia, PCOM students learn to approach problem solving in a more professional, more team-oriented manner, which prepares them to work successfully in integrated healthcare settings with other health professionals. Both campuses feature modern facilities and state-of-the-art technologies, as part of an innovative learning environment designed for collaboration and interaction.

PCOM offers a doctor of osteopathic medicine degree and graduate degree programs in clinical and school psychology, mental health counseling, physician assistant studies, forensic medicine, biomedical sciences, aging and long-term care administration, and organizational development and leadership. Students learn the importance of health promotion, education and service to the community and, through PCOM’s Healthcare Centers, provide care to medically-underserved populations in inner city and rural locations.
