The faculty and administrative 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 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.
The Center for Medical and Health Science
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. It is designed as a state-of-the-art modern learning environment with a fully equipped Center for Research and an innovative Center for Standardized Patient and Simulation. 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. LUCOM’s high-end, sophisticated technology also supports two modern auditoriums that each seat 203 student-doctors and that provide lecture demonstration and interactive learning.
The interaction with and professional service for patients of the region is provided by the extensive Liberty Mountain Medical Group (LMMG), down the road from the Center. The LMMG supports sports medicine, student, faculty and staff health needs of Liberty University, as well as provides osteopathic health care to the Lynchburg metropolitan area with an emphasis on providing service for those otherwise underserved.
