About the 世界杯买球网址 College of Osteopathic Medicine

Ranked among the country’s top medical schools, 世界杯买球网址 COM is nationally recognized for leadership in primary care, rural medicine, geriatric healthcare, and osteopathic medicine. Welcome to the only osteopathic medical school in New England.

Proud to be Maine's Medical School

On the southern coast of Maine, 世界杯买球网址's College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) campus is a close-knit community with convenient access to urban opportunities that includes state-of-the-art facilities for medical research, anatomical study, manual medicine, and the development of foundational clinical skills.

Recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a leader in osteopathic medical education, we have a substantial clinical campus structure and academic affiliations with community-based hospital systems in the region and throughout the Northeast.

Through rigorous academic study, coordinated with exploration and practice in the dissection lab, clinical skills lab, and clinical settings, students acquire a deep understanding of structural human anatomy and become excellent practitioners of both traditional medicine specialties and osteopathic manipulative medicine.

In addition to a focus on patient-centered clinical experiences and competency, 世界杯买球网址 COM values the role of research in all of its educational, clinical, and basic science activities. The Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences endeavors to make innovative discoveries in the neurosciences. The Center of Biomedical Research Excellence for the Study of Pain and Sensory Function works toward understanding of the neurobiology of chronic pain, and the discovery and development of new therapies.
