Welcome to the Office of Admissions!
This site is designed to provide students with an understanding of the recruitment philosophy of our college and the information and tools needed to complete and submit a successful application.
In addition to academic, leadership and service accomplishments, ACOM is looking for students who have a desire to pursue careers in primary care and have an understanding and dedication to the principals and practice of osteopathic medicine.
The physician workforce of tomorrow should reflect the diversity of the patients that they serve. ACOM is committed to the recruitment and enrollment of talented students from a variety of ethnic and economic backgrounds, especially from communities that have been historically underrepresented in the medical profession.
We expect to play a vital role in addressing the critical access and quality health care issues facing Alabama citizens and the region now and in the coming decades. ACOM will recruit students in Alabama and across the Deep South and will place an emphasis on identifying and enrolling underrepresented minorities and/or those students who have a desire to practice in underserved and rural communities. Our commitment to a diverse student body will also be demonstrated through the recruitment and enrollment of qualified students from throughout the U.S.* All ACOM students will be prepared to compete for the full variety of medical disciplines offered in graduate medical education.
* PLEASE NOTE: ACOM is not accepting international students at this time.
