College of Osteopathic Medicine Courses

KCUMB-COM students spend two years on campus in an academic environment with early clinical and educational enhancements. The second two years are spent in clerkships, many in the hospitals of HCA Midwest, the city's largest health-care provider. The College recruits nationally, and many students are able to return to core sites near their home communities for third- and fourth-year clerkships and postdoctoral training.

COM’s clinical presentation-based curriculum integrates the basic and clinical sciences throughout all four years in a structure that encourages independent learning and clinical problem solving, and that provides abundant early clinical experiences.

• Concepts of health-care policy, medical informatics, women’s health, palliative care, public health, preventive medicine and communication skills are integrated throughout the four year curriculum.

• Enhanced clinical clerkships during students’ third and fourth years take place in a wide variety of medical settings in Kansas City and throughout the United States, and reinforce important learning objectives while integrating academic assessment.

• KCUMB-COM’s curriculum has received national and international recognition for its focus on the physician-patient relationship.
