University prepares for its first class of medical students

When the doors officially open for the inaugural Class of 2018,
founding dean of Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine (LUCOM), Dr. Ronnie Martin,

Patients First. Martin is convinced that’s what Jesus would do.

“That’s the reason He is called the Great Physician instead of the great doctor. Jesus cared about the whole person,” said Dr. Martin.
