New York College of Osteopathic Medicine Courses

New York College of Osteopathic Medicine's curricula are guided by its mission to educate primary care physicians in a continuum of medical education. Curriculum development at NYCOM is a dynamic process that has resulted in allowing incoming students a choice of two curricular options: - AN INNOVATIVE LECTURE - Discussion Based (LDB) track that integrates the biomedical and clinical sciences along continuous didactic ‘threads’ delivered according to a systems based approach; - A PILOT PROBLEM - Based curriculum, the Doctor Patient Continuum (DPC), whose cornerstone is small-group, case-based learning. Course content and pedagogy are examined on an ongoing basis with annual enhancements in all areas. A student-centered, patient-focused approach is utilized to correlate basic and clinical science subject matter in an integrated fashion during the first two years of the continuum. Computer assisted instruction includes a state-of-the art patient simulation facility. Small group instruction is utilized in basic and clinical science labs, including Practical components of the doctor-patient relationship and osteopathic manipulative medicine. These methodologies supplement the traditional lecture-discussion format, and the pilot track featuring problem-based learning. Clerkships in the third and fourth years of the continuum provide for a variety of clinical exposures and experiences, from one-on-one preceptorships in physicians’ private practices, to serving as team members in a tertiary care hospital. Students are given increasing responsibility as their skills develop and are credentialed to perform designated medical procedures. Integration of structural evaluations and osteopathic manipulative treatment is encouraged throughout all clerkships. Awareness of psychosocial factors, legal issues and ethical concerns is fostered throughout the educational continuum.
