Dean's Welcome

Dr. Amanda WrightThank you for visiting our website and for your interest in the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MU-COM)! This is an exciting time to join the field of medicine.

At MU-COM our mission is to prepare osteopathic physicians that are committed to the complete healing of individuals and will serve the people of Indiana. To accomplish this mission, we focus on 1) educational excellence, 2) partnerships, and 3) interprofessional collaboration.

We are proud to report that our residency placement rate for the Class of 2020 (154 graduates) was 100%!!! By specialty, 66.9% of our graduates will begin training in Primary Care and by geographic location, 40.3% of our graduates will be training in the State of Indiana. To support educational excellence in our students, we have an exceptional group of faculty and staff. Adding to that faculty will be six new faculty members joining our Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) and Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences programs this fall. They will advance our curriculum across the four-year continuum by better aligning our instructional and assessment activities with the intensified emphasis on physician competencies and clinical presentations.

We are proud of the clinical partnerships we have in Indiana. Through continued educational support of our clinical partners, we were able to continue to deliver a high-quality curriculum despite the challenges of a COVID-19 landscape. As a student at Marian, your community of support extends throughout the state and for this, we are truly grateful.

This spring, we welcomed Marsha Casey as Interim Senior Vice President of Health Professions. We look forward to growing our interprofessional activities across the curriculum so we can best prepare our learners for the patient care environments they will ultimately enter.

MU-COM is focused on fostering student success in a dynamic, learner-centered environment with wonderful faculty and staff, in a growing and vibrant city.

MU-COM is a great place to be—join us as we advance “From Here to Top-Tier.”

Sincerely,

Amanda Wright, DO
Interim Dean, College of Osteopathic Medicine
