Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine

Staying at the forefront of medical education is PCOM’s greatest tradition. Since 1899, 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. PCOM empowers students by adding wider perspectives to all disciplines. Students engage with the community and learn to collaborate as part of a healthcare team.

PCOM’s main campus is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They also have a branch campus in Suwanee, Georgia and anticipate the opening of a third location in South Georgia in August of 2019. PCOM’s campuses feature state-of-the art technology and an innovative learning environment designed for collaboration and hands-on learning.
