East Texas is a delightful place to live and raise a family. We have several hospital and clinic partners in both community-based hospitals and larger medical centers. These same hospitals are also developing GME programs that should be available to our students before graduation.

Thank you for putting your trust in us. As a student at SHSU-COM, you will be part of the osteopathic family and we will do everything we can to ensure your success. Becoming a physician is one of the best things you can do with your life, and becoming an Osteopathic Physician makes you unique to the practice of medicine.
