COVID-19 Response and Resources

The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine is placing the health and welfare of our VCOM community and the communities in which we reside as our main concern.  More information.

VCOM-Carolinas Campus

In 2011, VCOM opened a second campus in collaboration with Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System to address healthcare shortages in upstate South Carolina. The Carolinas Campus is part of Spartanburg's College Town Consortium of seven colleges and universities, which offers a variety of social opportunities and benefits for students.

The main campus building houses clinical skills labs that are interconnected via video and conferencing technology, a state-of-the-art anatomy lab, and a center for technology and simulated medicine. Students and faculty conduct research in our remodeled research facility that opened in 2016, the cancer and stem cell lab in the Gibbs Cancer Research Center, and the biomedical research center adjacent to campus. 

Each year's class admits about 150 medical students, for a total student body of 600.

Improving Healthcare in the Carolinas

Spartanburg, South Carolina was selected for the second VCOM location due to a tremendous need for primary care doctors in the county and in the surrounding areas. Since its founding in 2010 in the heart of the targeted region, VCOM-Carolinas has flooded the western Appalachian region of NC and the upstate region of SC with over 900 physicians. The majority of these graduates pursue primary care residencies, carrying out the Mission to meet the needs of the underserved in rural communities.
