Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine

Located in Conroe, Texas

The Sam Houston State University (SHSU) College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) seeks to prepare students for the degree of Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) with an emphasis toward primary care and rural practice, to develop culturally aware, diverse and compassionate physicians, who follow osteopathic principles, that are prepared for graduate medical education (GME or more commonly known as residency), and will serve the people of Texas with professionalism and patient-centered care.

The DO program follows a vertically and horizontally integrated, biomedical sciences and clinical, systems-based curriculum. The program will utilize multiple teaching modalities like lecture, small group, case-based learning, clinical practice, simulation, and active learning to promote deep and complete mastery of the concepts. Research, ethics, statistics, and osteopathic principles and practices will be embedded within all realms of clinical and pre-clinical education. Students will complete this program as lifelong learners prepared with the knowledge and tools they need to be successful in residency.
