LMU-DCOM’s curriculum is a four-year, full-time academic and clinical program leading to granting the degree of Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO). The curriculum will stress the interdependence of the biological, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences. The emphasis will be on educating physicians for primary care medicine, employing the distinctive osteopathic principles for the maintenance of health and treatment of disease.
A physician must be skilled in problem solving and demonstrate expertise in diagnosis. To achieve this goal, LMU-DCOM’s curriculum will emphasize the integration of the basic and clinical sciences in medical practice. The curriculum will be divided into a pre- clinical phase and a clinical phase.
