Geisinger PCOM Clinical Campus

What is the Geisinger PCOM Clinical Campus?

After the first two years of study at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, students can apply to Geisinger’s PCOM Clinical Campus to spend the clinical years (third and fourth years) learning within the Geisinger Health System. Geisinger accepts up to 12 PCOM students into the program each year.

Geisinger’s unique learning environment (referred to as a regional medical campus) provides the complete range of clinical education and maintains a formal administrative and educational relationship with the school of medicine. An Association of American Medical Colleges study in 2003 found that “clinician teachers practicing at regional campuses ... offered educational experiences [with] flexibility and innovation in design and delivery of clinical education.”

Advantages for students include understanding Geisinger’s innovations and system-based programs that lead to optimal patient outcomes; honing skills through an integrated curriculum of simulation and participation in Geisinger committees; and hands-on experience with quality improvement initiatives. Geisinger offers all of this as well as scholarship opportunities, an advanced electronic library, a full range of electives and full-time faculty.
