Introduction

The focus of the College of Osteopathic Medicine is on preparing competent osteopathic physicians through classroom and clinical teaching, service to the community, and research.

All of this is accomplished within the framework of an institution that is committed to providing a quality education in the best traditions of the Jewish heritage.

Academics

Practice in problem solving is part of the daily classroom clinic experience as the school strives to provide an educational program consistent with emerging directions of healthcare. Housing Limited on-campus housing is available and off-campus housing assistance is provided.
