Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine
Our signature degree program, doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO) prepares future doctors to become well-rounded, community-focused physicians. In addition to the traditional MD training in a wide range of specialties, you'll learn a whole-person osteopathic approach to guide you in a lifelong mission of serving the underserved.
International, Appalachian, and Delta Region Programs
Each year, our students and faculty provide care to thousands of patients in underserved areas — whether in other countries or right in our own neighborhoods. These opportunities give you hands-on clinical field experience while providing life-changing care to those most in need.
