College of Osteopathic Medicine Courses

Students enrolled in OU-COM study in one of two tracks – the Patient-Centered Continuum (PCC) curriculum or the Clinical Presentation Continuum (CPC) curriculum. Both curricula view medical education as an organized building process that extends from the first day of medical school through residency training and beyond. Students in both curricula begin interacting with real patients in the first weeks of their medical education.
The PCC curriculum provides opportunities for the integration of clinical, biomedical and social medicine fundamentals in the small group setting. Students work together to identify learning issues based on patient-centered cases designed by clinical and basic science faculty. Learning issues developed by the students serve as an outline to direct faculty in providing additional guidance through interactive problem sets and resource hours.

The CPC curriculum is organized around important or common symptoms that bring patients to see her/his physician. This faculty-directed curriculum provides structured learning topics, learning activities and readings to help students learn the clinical, biomedical and social fundamentals of medicine relevant to the related disease processes.
After two years on the Athens campus, OU-COM students are assigned to a hospital in our Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education (CORE) system to complete training during their third and fourth years in a clinical environment. This assignment is accomplished by means of a lottery that is conducted in the fall of the student’s second year.
