The mission of the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM) is to “provide quality, learner-centered osteopathic education, with emphasis on patient-centered, team-based primary care to serve the medically underserved areas of Alabama, the Tri-State area, and the nation.” Through the lens of service and collaboration, ACOM research starts in our community and directly benefits the health and welfare of our community, our state, and the nation.
In conjunction with our faculty, network of clinical preceptor sites, graduate medical education (GME) affiliates, students, and community partners, ACOM aims to be a leader in population health, clinical, biomedical, and medical education research. We are dedicated to supporting a rich research culture that serves and builds thriving communities through innovation and discovery.
ACOM supports an ever-evolving research program that engages faculty and students throughout the institution through several initiatives, including dedicated space(s), resources and funding, and research support.
