AACOM has released a report summarizing the responses from its survey of 2011-12 osteopathic medical school graduating seniors. The annual study, conducted by AACOM’s Research Department through the nation's colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs), compiles a comprehensive snapshot of graduating seniors’ osteopathic medical education debt, experiences in and satisfaction with various aspects of their medical education, and future plans. A total of 3,489 seniors participated in the 2011-12 Graduating Seniors Survey.
Overall, 2011-12 survey respondents were satisfied with the first two years of their osteopathic medical education. Eighty-three percent of all respondents reported that they were very satisfied or satisfied with the overall quality of their osteopathic medical training, a figure equivalent to the 2010-11 seniors’ reported satisfaction levels.
