From the President

As we celebrate the 193rd anniversary of Dr. Still's birth tomorrow, AACOM President and CEO Robert A. Cain, DO, asks us to take a moment to reflect not just on Dr. Still's achievements, but also on the lessons we can all learn from his extraordinary life.

AACOM Press Statements

After compiling all the data from its member colleges, AACOM congratulates the largest class of DO students to ever participate in the National Resident Matching Program's Match Week for a 98 percent match rate.

In response to the alarming, nationwide surge of COVID-19 cases and the troubling rise of hospitalizations, especially among unvaccinated individuals, AACOM strongly encourages every eligible member of the American public, including members of the osteopathic medical education community, to promptly receive the COVID-19 vaccine and take all additional precautions necessary to protect themselves and their community.

Awards & Leadership

“As an alumna and a pediatrician with Solano County Public Health and the Vallejo City Unified School District, Dr. Hendriksz brings a passion for serving our students and our community,” said TUCOM-CA Provost and Chief Academic Officer Sarah Sweitzer, PhD.
