Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine
Indiana’s newest medical school will open in August 2013, and will combine the strengths of the osteopathic philosophy and Marian University’s rich Catholic history, making it one of only five Catholic medical schools—and the only Catholic osteopathic medical school—in the nation. The Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MU-COM) in Indianapolis recognizes the power of the osteopathic medical philosophy, which treats the root cause of illness not just the symptoms, and promotes a lifetime of wellness.
MU-COM will provide an education that profoundly transforms lives, society, and the world, consistent with Marian University’s vision. The program will emphasize osteopathic training in all areas of medicine, including primary care, through lifelong learning and scholarly activity delivered by a dynamic academic community. The university’s commitment to the Franciscan and liberal arts traditions will inspire a new generation of healers who wish to be a part of an extraordinary medical school.
