Join a New Generation of Doctors

You’re ready to join one of the fastest-growing professions in health care.

As a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.), you’ll use your mind, hands, and senses to help diagnose and treat your patients. You’ll practice the art of compassionate healing, listening to your patients, and focus on an integrated whole-person approach to health care.

You’ll study the principles and practice of osteopathic medicine, including manipulation and a holistic approach to the patient. You’ll build your skills through clinical rotations.

You’ll be on the cutting edge of research and technology with access to a state-of-the-art virtual lab, robotics mannequin lab, research wet lab and standardized patient labs, as well as virtual reality research and 3D printing. 

Upon graduation, you can purse medical, surgical and obstetric specialties in professional internships and residencies.
