Our Focus on Future Physicians

Our physicians are comprehensively trained, patient-focused, and passionate about giving back. As DOs, we emphasize preventive medicine, a patient-centered approach to care, and empowering patients to strive toward the body’s natural, optimal state of function, self-healing and health.



Residency Match Locations

Each year, thousands of osteopathic medical students participate in the Match, which places fourth year students into residency training programs at teaching health centers across the country.  VCOM students are very successful in the match with 99% – 100% matching into a residency training program, which far exceeds the national match average each year.

Our Campuses

While our academic programs follow the same structure across campuses, your medical school experience will be shaped by the location you choose. We have four campuses, each with its own faculty members, student groups, and university affiliations.
