Making a difference with medical missions
Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine’s mission includes developing outreach sites in rural and underserved areas, providing educational services and healthcare to our region and a sustainable international medical missions program.
As a student at Campbell Medicine, participate in a number of health outreach programs both locally and internationally. We desire to bring together teams to solve health problems in our local community and globally.
