Dean's Welcome

This is an exciting time to be a part of osteopathic medicine! The Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MU-COM) is a great place to start your medical career. We are proud of the ways in which we live out our mission, and we look forward to you joining us! 

MU-COM is a Catholic medical institution built on the inspired vision and values of our Franciscan heritage. At Marian, we aim to provide an education that “profoundly transforms lives, society, and the world” consistent with the Catholic university’s four core Franciscan sponsorship values (dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship) and the tenets of osteopathic medicine. To do this, you will find our curriculum highlights interprofessional education, provides service-learning opportunities, integrates diversity, equity, inclusion, and ethics, and provides wellness programming in and outside of the classroom. 

MU-COM is dedicated to preparing osteopathic physicians who are committed to the complete healing of individuals’ bodies, minds, and spirits. Our curriculum promotes and measures a strong and integrated foundation of basic science and clinical sciences, which can be applied to patient care. This allows our students to serve diverse populations of individuals and cultures, including rural and underserved populations locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Our program provides all learners with a strong foundational knowledge in primary care, which will allow you to practice in a multitude of practice settings and in any specialty. Osteopathic principles and practice (OPP) and osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) are delivered longitudinally across all four years of your education. We focus on teaching and living out a “whole person” approach to our patients and students. 

MU-COM is an institution committed to serving the people of Indiana and to developing osteopathic physicians through research, service, and teaching. We are so proud and excited to work with such a fantastic group of clinical partners! MU-COM has made a commitment to actively support our partners who help to educate our learners. We have partnered with them to provide early clinical exposure, service-learning opportunities, mentorship and leadership opportunities, research support, and osteopathic recognition to some of the residency programs. 

The rigors of medicine and medical education are challenging. The support you will feel from MU-COM from the day of your interview or campus visit all the way through as an alumnus is even stronger! We will be here to support you every step of the way and cheer you on as you pursue your dreams!
