Learn More About LUCOM
The LUCOM curriculum is designed to guide student-doctors to develop a holistic (body, mind, and spirit) osteopathic approach to medicine. Your LUCOM education is learner-focused, patient-centered, and outcomes-oriented.
The curriculum in the first two-years is an integrated, spiral curriculum featuring a variety of learning modalities and clinically oriented experiences. This phase of the training provides the opportunity for students to develop professional ethical standards and behaviors, as well as to learn the medical knowledge and skills required to graduate as a competent and effective osteopathic physician.
During your third-year, you are assigned to one of LUCOM’s core educational sites to ensure continuity, consistency, and coordination in your clinical education. In the fourth-year, you will receive continued advisement and guidance from LUCOM as you begin audition and away rotations.
