Medical Outreach and
International Medicine

The Office of Medical Outreach and International Medicine at Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine (LUCOM) dedicates itself to provide medical care in underserved communities in the local area and across the world. It is our mission to reach out to communities that would normally have little to no access to medical care.

Our faculty, administrative staff, and student-doctors are fully committed to being Christ’s hands and feet in a world full of physical, emotional and spiritual need. As an osteopathic college, our future physicians learn to treat the patient as an integrated whole, incorporating the mind, body and spirit.

Scripture states “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ Matthew 25:40 (ESV). LUCOM strongly believes the best way to fulfill the mission the Lord has placed in our hands to share the Gospel is to reach out to those who need the most assistance.
