As a bastion of history steeped in academic excellence, the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine—only the third of its kind when established in 1899—now spans 17 acres of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as well as an extension campus in Suwanee, Georgia. Beyond its osteopathic core, it has added academic programs in biomedical sciences, forensic medicine, clinical psychology and pharmacy, and is internationally known for its Center for Chronic Disorders of Aging. PCOM’s experienced faculty run the gamut of research topics, conducting studies on everything from neuromuscular functions and cancer biology to geriatrics and terror management theory. Further, financial aid staff here is dedicated to making graduate study affordable: PCOM purposely keeps its tuition increases smaller than the average across-the-nation rate increase. Information related to finances and many other relevant topics is always at students’ fingertips via NUCLEUS, PCOM’s exclusive online portal. Graduates can even keep up-to-date with the latest developments in osteopathy by reading in-house-published Digest Magazine! With the future of their health in these capable hands, the American east and southeast should rest easy.
