Which are the good ones?

Post by future doc »

Hey all,

I was wondering which D.O. schools have the good reps? Michigan State and W.V. were listed in U.S. News as being among the top med schools in the country for primary care. I also know Philadelphia is pretty good.

What about Univ. of New England?
Lake Erie?
Edward Via Vriginia etc. etc.

CCOM is a good school. Are you looking in a specific area?

For the closest thing to the original osteopathic philosophy, look to A.T. University-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. It's also the top rated for rural training.

When I was in school in Philadelphia PCOM was considered as difficult to get into as the other med schools, Jefferson,Hahneman,Penn,Temple,
and MCOP. Very strong reputation

I second that, PCOM has a very, very sound reputation. The residents out of PCOM get into very competitive residencies, for both DO and MD programs. Are all DO schools ridiculously expensive? I know WVU and PCOM are $70k+!!!!
