Get Active, Hands-On Learning at LUCOM

Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine (LUCOM) brings you hands-on medical experience with an active learning curriculum. We believe that the key to successful medical practices and becoming life-long learners is knowledge of the “why” much more than the acquisition of the “what.” That’s why, as a Liberty osteopathic medical student, you are equipped with experience through:

  • Lecture demonstrations with active-learning techniques
  • OMM laboratory sessions
  • Team-based learning activities
  • Interactive classroom learning

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.

In your first year as a student-doctor at LUCOM, you are exposed to the “real-world” of clinical practices and medicine. This exposure expands in your second-year with the increased opportunity to interact with standardized patients on campus as well as with real patients in office and hospital settings under physician-supervised outreach and shadowing opportunities. During your third- and fourth-year, you are assigned to one of LUCOM’s core educational sites to ensure continuity, consistency, and coordination in your clinical education.
