PCOM has wonderful staff and faculty; it is truly a nurturing community. I grew a lot as a person and student while I was at PCOM and I feel very fortunate to have meet so many talented, friendly, and inspiring people many of whom have become lifelong friends.

I think college has become more business orientated than education related. Anyone can get any degree anymore if you are willing to pay. It doesn't feel like an accomplishment to graduate anymore.

GA-PCOM has been a great supporting factor in my medical career. I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to train as an osteopathic physician. It is very conveniently located in metro Atlanta. The campus had grown to encompass many classes and programs!

What an amazing school. Professors believe in teaching the material properly and are always available in their offices for you. They are very welcoming and approachable. The school wants you to succeed and has a very close student population.

I would not recommend PCOM PA program. Most of the faculty do not care about your success. The school has a very high first time PANCE pass rate because they make the academic standards very difficult, and many people don't make it until graduation. Their GPA requirements are much higher than other programs, and their exams are weighted differently than every other program, making it very difficult to get a good grade. PA school is already hard enough. PCOM ups the standards and the demands of students so they look good as a program when all their students pass the certification exam.

PCOM is a great school, located just outside of the city of Philadelphia. The faculty and students, alike are amazing, knowledgeable, and want to see you suceed. I could not see myself going anywhere else.

I've been at PCOM for four years, completing a Masters in Biomedical sciences and 2 years of the DO program. The school has an excellent faculty and staff, and a culture among the student body that encourages helping one another. We are provided with a quality education that will enable us to become great doctors. The school has begun to take advantage of the academic technologies available to us but still has a ways to go.

PCOM is a terrific school to learn medicine. They have quality faculty that are accessible and on the cutting edge of medical research. The student body as fostered a culture of togetherness in which everyone is working to help each other become better doctors. We have access to great resources and technology, not to mention an extensive alumni network. I am proud to a PCOM medical student!
