The report includes all 44 teaching locations that have been accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA)’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA). It also details each U.S. college of osteopathic medicine (COM)’s inaugural class, geographic location, and school type—private, public, branch campus, or remote teaching site.
It is worth noting that two new locations have been added to this year’s report. For the 2016-17 school year, the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) will open its doors to its inaugural class of future DOs in Las Cruces, NM, thereby expanding total COM reach to 29 states. Additionally, Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine (KCU-COM) has received approval for an additional remote teaching site in Joplin, MO. Both locations are included in the totals listed in the report.
