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 opportunities to engage with real patients in office and hospital settings under physician-supervised outreach and shadowing opportunities. 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.
