Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO)
Educating physicians who will excel by learning the whole-person approach to delivering superior patient care in communities they serve.
Years one & two
During years one and two the curriculum is highly integrated to provide both a strong core of biomedical principles and a robust foundation in clinical sciences including osteopathic principles, clinical skills, and professionalism. Content is delivered in 9-week blocks over four semesters. The week between blocks allows time for students to have a vacation or participate in medical mission trips.
Years three & four
Year three and four students train at regional clinical sites in North Carolina and South Carolina. Clinical experiences occur within hospitals for inpatient experiences, ambulatory practices, and acute care facilities. In keeping with our mission to prepare primary care physicians for underserved areas while preparing students to enter residency in any specialty, all students spend time in rural small and critical access hospitals for an underserved care experience.
Campbell University is one of only three private universities in North Carolina to hold SACSCOC Level VI accreditation status, the highest level possible. The other two institutions are Duke and Wake Forest.
