The Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine is a Catholic medical institution built on the inspired vision and values of our Franciscan heritage, and dedicated to preparing osteopathic physicians who are committed to the complete healing of individuals’ bodies, minds, and spirits. This institution is committed to serving the people of Indiana and to developing osteopathic physicians through research, service, and teaching.
A quality professional education program emphasizing osteopathic training in primary care through lifelong learning and scholarly activity in a caring, academic community. This community will include students from Indiana as well as those from the surrounding states, the nation, and the world.
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.
A curriculum that promotes and measures student competencies with an emphasis on osteopathic clinical skills and public service activities provided in diverse populations of individuals and cultures, including the underprivileged and medically under-served in local, regional, national, and international environments.
A commitment to actively support and encourage hospitals in Indiana and surrounding states in the expansion of graduate medical education either by increasing positions in existing residency and fellowship programs or by creating new programs.
