The American Osteopathic Association’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA) accredits osteopathic medical education programs leading to the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree in the United States (programmatic accreditation).
To achieve and maintain accreditation, an osteopathic medical education program leading to the DO degree must meet the standards delineated in the COCA COM Continuing Accreditation Standards provided on the COCA Accreditation Standards webpage. COMs beginning the process towards accreditation must follow the guidelines detailed in the COCA COM New and Developing Accreditation Standards provided on the COCA Accreditation Standards webpage.
The COCA granted the Campbell University Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine (CUSOM) Accreditation status in 2017, with the next accreditation review scheduled for 2024. Accreditation status was the highest level of accreditation awarded at that time.
