I'm thinking because they are so new, that the starting class will have dificulty in landing some of the more competitive residencies?:

The Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation has awarded
provisional accreditation status to Lincoln Memorial University - DeBusk
College of Osteopathic Medicine, Harrogate, TN. The college will have an
initial class size of 150 students.

DCOM will be enrolling its first class in August 2007 and is now
available for designation on the AACOMAS application web site. Applicants who
have already submitted their applications may designate additional
colleges by logging on to the AACOMAS web site and selecting designation and adding.
Applicants who have not yet submitted their applications will find the new
college on the designation list.

If you have any questions about DCOM, please contact them directly;
questions about the AACOMAS process should be directed to

Tom Levitan,
Vice President for Research and Application Services

i think their boards will be the major determinants for residency placing.

I don't think the age of the school will make any difference, as far as students getting residencies and stuff go.
Actually, it may be a bit unorganized the first year or two, and I suspect that some people will not do as well on the COMLEX and USMLE, as a result. But that's really up to the individual students to compensate.
I'm planning on including it as one of my AACOMAS designations next summer.
