The faculty and staff of Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine (LUCOM) believe the state-of-the-art resources, science and clinical education, along with faculty/student-doctor mentorships, will motivate student-doctors to positively impact the quality of life. It is the goal and mission of LUCOM to inspire student-doctors to expand their horizons beyond their local community and changes lives globally for the better.
In designing the new Center for Medical and Health Sciences, which houses LUCOM, special emphasis was placed on providing available resources, facilities, and partnerships with regional healthcare systems, that promote learning and success for the student-doctors, as well as, the advancement of medical knowledge and service of the public.
About the New Center
Atop Liberty Mountain and clearly visible from U.S. Highway Interstate 460 and 29, the Center consists of approximately 140,000-square-feet across four floors. The center is designed as a state-of-the-art modern learning environment with a fully equipped Research Center and an innovative Simulation and Standardized Patient Education center contained in the building. Expansive, technologically advanced Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM), Clinical Medicine and Anatomy Labs are provided for LUCOM student-doctors to acquire knowledge and skill through observation, participation, practice, and hands-on applications, and cadaveric dissection.
A modern Learning Resource Center and Library in the building are augmented by the Jerry Falwell Library on campus and provide educational, research and scholarly support for the student-doctors of the college.
16 small group study rooms and 12 conference rooms provide for the active learning curriculum with full electronic capability and interface within the labs, library and auditoriums of the facility described above. Supported by two modern auditoriums that seat 203 student-doctors each and provide for both lecture demonstration and interactive learning, the technology of the facilities are second to none in the profession.
The interaction with and professional service for patients of the region is provided for by the extensive medical clinic that is a part of the Center. Supporting sports medicine, student, faculty and staff health needs of Liberty University, the medical clinic will also provide osteopathic health care to the Lynchburg metropolitan area with an emphasis on providing service for those otherwise underserved.
