VCOM Carolinas campus will remain closed today Thursday, January 18, 2108 due to continued treacherous driving conditions on secondary roadways.


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.

  • Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine

    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.

  • Master of Arts in Biomedical Sciences

    The primary purpose of M.A. in Biomedical Sciences is to allow students to enhance their academics and gain acceptance into a medical school through a nine-month, 35-credit hour, rigorous curriculum.
