AACOM has released a report summarizing the responses from its survey of 2013-14 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’ self-reported debt and financing of osteopathic medical education, education experiences, satisfaction with various aspects of their medical education, and future plans. A total of 3,724 expected graduates from 29 COMs and branch campuses responded to the 2013-14 Graduating Seniors Survey.
Findings show that over 80 percent of graduates report being very satisfied or satisfied with their osteopathic medical training. Consistent with prior year responses, 31 percent of graduates report plans to specialize in the primary care disciplines of general internal medicine, general pediatrics, and family medicine.
