Welcome to PCOM!


For more than a century, PCOM has trained highly competent, caring physicians, health practitioners and behavioral scientists who practice a "whole person" approach, treating people, not just symptoms. PCOM offers the doctor of osteopathic medicine degree in addition to graduate programs in psychology, physician assistant studies, forensic medicine, organizational development and leadership, and biomedical sciences. Georgia Campus -- PCOM is home to a new school of pharmacy. Our students learn the importance of health promotion, education and service to the community and, through PCOM's five Healthcare Centers, provide care to the medically underserved populations in inner city and rural locations.
PCOM is known for its spirit of collegiality and camaraderie. Student/faculty collaboration is common, with students working alongside faculty conducting research, coauthoring articles and presenting at professional conferences.

A rich heritage combined with a progressive use of cutting-edge technology creates an optimum environment for learning. PCOM's Clinical Learning and Assessment Lab, with its robotic and human patient simulators, offers unique educational opportunities for students in most of the College's programs.
