I love our school. The support of the faculty and classmates ( as well as upperclassmen) are nothing short of remarkable. Studying medicine is stressful, and the workload can be overwhelming at times but it's good preparation for becoming a doctor. All of our lectures are recorded and can be watched online, although as a commuter campus I feel that certain classes should be exclusively online for the sake of convenience. That being said, I am very happy with PCOM as a whole and am proud to be a student there.

Leaves you well prepared for workforce, but not much financial help available other than loans.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

The Biomedical Sciences Program (GA Campus) prepares you mentally and physically for medical school. There are pros and cons to this school like any other school you would attend. However, I would like to start with the pros: helpful faculty, same professors teach Biomedical Students as in the DO program, OMM instructor really good, small school, very safe, and a lot of clubs/organizations. The cons: small library and no food sold in the cafeteria.

The DO program at PCOM is excellent. The pros are a competitive program that is highly regarded within the medical community that provides students with a well rounded clinical and didactic foundation for practicing medicine as well as a faculty and staff that are extremely experienced and knowledgable in their respective fields of education, study, and practice. The cons are heavily outweighed by the pros, but include a lack of on-campus student housing and a high yearly tuition, however this can be well managed with the help of the financial aid department.

PCOM in Georgia is a wonderful medical school. The faculty and staff do an excellent job of catering to student's needs and providing all the necessary advice and help to succeed in class. Students are also friendly and do a great job of explaining possible questions. A con associated with PCOM is that the campus could use some expansion in the future because it can seem to be somewhat smaller than other medical school campuses.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2016

PCOM pharmacy program is only 4 years old. The school rely heavily on recording of lectures which is good because if you miss a class, you can go back and listen to the lectures. PCOM is a private school so tuition is very expensive. There is not much aid from financial aid. I wish they offer more scholarships. The school is a trimester system which is a good thing and a bad thing. You will take about 12-14 credits hours but have to be in school longer than most schools. We only get 12 days for winter break. Most colleges get three weeks off.
