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.

Approximately one in four medical students is now enrolled in an osteopathic medical school. NSU’s Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine program gives you an edge as you participate in clinical settings within the first month of your inaugural semester, giving you immediate access to the real world of medicine. 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 3-D printing. 

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