On May 4, the AACOM Application Service (AACOMAS), the centralized online application service for the nation’s osteopathic medical colleges, launched the 2016-2017 application cycle. This year’s system includes more advanced features and functionality designed to assist colleges in optimizing their admissions processes. Other enhancements will result in a more efficient application process for applicants.

The AACOMAS Advantage

AACOMAS simplifies the osteopathic medical school application process. Due to the tremendous growth in osteopathic medical education (OME), prospective students are strongly encouraged to submit applications early to increase their chances for consideration by the college(s) of their choice. U.S. colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs) will begin processing applications for the fall 2017 entering class on June 15 or later.

Visit the AACOMAS web page for detailed information about the application process, including general admission requirements, application deadlines, and more.

Applicants may visit the application website to complete and submit applications, and view the status, updates, and other important information related to their application(s).
