Interest in Osteopathic Medical Schools Continues to Grow
For the first time in history, osteopathic medical students make up more than 25 percent of the U.S. medical student population.
Fall 2018 (first-year) student enrollment at the nation’s colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs) increased 5.7 percent from fall 2017 first-year student enrollment, according to data released by the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM).
Western University of Health Sciences osteopathic medicine programs in Pomona, California and Lebanon, Oregon reach their enrollment caps each year, so class sizes remain steady. But the increasing number of applications to both campuses reflects the growing interest in osteopathic medicine.

Willed Body Donation Program
