Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine

MU-COM is the only osteopathic medical school in the state of Indiana, and the first new medical school in the state in over 110 years. Osteopathic medicine is a conventional medical discipline with osteopathic physicians licensed to practice in all areas of medicine in 50 states, and a number of foreign countries. The osteopathic philosophy is focused on treating the whole person, with an emphasis on wellness and prevention.

Our unique curriculum offers some exciting opportunities for an osteopathic medical education, which are attractive to students interested in all areas of medicine. Courses are integrated on an organ system approach, incorporating basic biomedical principles with clinical education concepts. Using a competency-based framework for instruction and assessment ideally suited to preparing our medical students for graduation and ensuing years of residency. We’ve been able to build a strong foundation for medical education in part to our location, which the Wall Street Journal calls the Life-Science Hub of the United States. Our location also allows students to grow academically through clinical and translational research opportunities, professionally by participating in our physician-mentoring program, and socially through service-learning opportunities and other engaging activities.

As you explore our website and learn more about our osteopathic medical school, I know you’ll see just how special this medical school really is.

We hope you enjoy learning about MU-COM and our program. Thank you for spending time with us. We look forward to receiving your application.

If you have questions I encourage you to contact a member of our enrollment management team.
