At the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM), medical students learn to provide patient centered care from experiences extending far beyond the classroom.
VCOM is a four year medical school that offers the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree. Medical students and faculty often say that they were drawn to the college’s mission to prepare globally-minded, community focused physicians for rural and medically underserved areas, and to improve human health especially of those most in need.
Students who attend VCOM express a desire to help others, and through the college’s curriculum, outreach opportunities, student organizations, and culture of sharing in education, are able to turn this desire into a lifelong mission of serving the underserved.

Patients find that osteopathic physicians bring something extra to medicine, practicing a “whole person” approach that involves the mind, body, and spirit. The specialized training VCOM students receive allows our graduates to offer the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.
