Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine Courses


At the founding college of osteopathic medicine, KCOM students receive comprehensive medical education that includes access to the latest technology, including human patient simulators, simulated patient encounters, and broad educational experience. The Complete DOctor, a course specific to KCOM, incorporates early clinical experiences with didactic study in physical exam skills, cultural diversity, communication skills, spirituality in medicine, medical law, and ethics.

KCOM students spend their first two years studying the basic sciences and clinical introductions in a campus setting. In the third and fourth years, students participate in clinical rotations in one of KCOM's national rotation regions, which include sites in Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Utah. KCOM graduates are selected to many different prestigious residency programs across the nation, including Yale, Johns Hopkins University, Genesys Regional Medical Center, the Mayo Clinic, and Cleveland Clinic Foundation. With an emphasis in primary care and rural health, KCOM graduates enter family practice, as well as a variety of specialties such as anesthesiology, dermatology, emergency medicine, diagnostic radiology, and surgery.

KCOM graduates represent a diverse group of osteopathic physicians practicing in every state and several foreign countries. They span all medical specialties and subspecialties and comprise approximately a quarter of all practicing osteopathic physicians.
