RVUCOM strives to recruit and educate individuals committed to becoming community-based, primary care physicians who will assist in meeting the needs of the wide diversity of patients they will encounter during their careers, and who will be equipped to adapt to the demands of a changing health care system.

The principles of education that guide RVUCOM include early clinical integration and experience for its students; a supportive, active and interactive learning environment; and an integrated curriculum designed to provide the knowledge, skills and competencies required to prepare a student to enter graduate medical education and support life-long professional growth and learning.

RVUCOM’s extensive community partnerships ensure that the clinical sites and clinical faculty needed for the education of its students are available within the region and that the student’s education will continue under the supervision and guidance of college appointed faculty. The COM is actively engaged in developing the graduate medical education opportunities that will be required and desired by graduates as well as other osteopathic and allopathic physicians within our community partners and at affiliated sites.
