President’s Welcome

Welcome to the Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine (Noorda-COM). I invite you to browse our website to see the possibilities and the benefits that are part of the Noorda-COM learning experience.

Our mission is to empower our students with the essential personal and professional skills they need to be competent, confident, and compassionate osteopathic physicians dedicated to fulfilling our mission and to meeting the near and distant healthcare challenges of the communities in which they will serve. Here you will find the leadership, faculty and staff committed to your success and a blended curricular model that pioneers the integration of technology and directed, personal academic guidance and advancement, putting you at the epi-center of this previously uncharted medical education enlightenment.

The medical academic journey we have embarked upon will positively and significantly impact lives and effect change with millions of people throughout the world in a myriad of ways that we cannot fully envision at this time.

We welcome you to the Noorda-COM family and to the transformational changes, experiences and opportunities that await you!
