Current Institutional Projects
Open-Air Pavilion and Community GardenLearn More
ACOM is currently developing an outdoor recreation and learning facility. This Open-Air Pavilion project will also include the development of several acres of land as a community garden, which will include fruit and vegetable producing plants.
ACOM Taylor ClinicLearn More
This second clinic will enable ACOM to better meet the needs of the students by providing more space and increased patient contacts for all ACOM students who must complete a third-year four-week core rotation in rural primary care & OMM. It will also enhance ACOM’s visibility and service to the community by addressing the healthcare needs in that area.
