Attending Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) in Spartanburg, SC is amazing. It is like a small family there where your classmates and all, and I mean ALL, of the staff are looking out for you. You can easily get one on one attention if needed. Compared to other schools, I think VCOM is an excellent choice because they have all the resources you need right on campus. You complete your own dissections, learn clinical skills, work in the SIM labs, and have opportunities to volunteer seeing patients starting in your first year. You are taught by doctors and specialists that work for the school, but also from the surrounding area as well. Therefore, your education is from doctors that are still practicing in the field and love their work. The school also encourages and provides opportunities for the students to have an active lifestyle outside of the classroom, following true to osteopathic philosophy. It is truly a place I am glad to call a home away from home.
