Through Ohio Dominican University’s exclusive partnership with Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine eligible students can complete their Doctor of Osteopathy in as few as seven years.

The ODU-to-OU Med School Early Assurance Program will accept a limited number of outstanding incoming freshman students each year who will be assured of acceptance into the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (OU-HCOM), as long as they maintain the high academic standards of the agreement.

OU-HCOM is one of the top osteopathic programs in the nation and the only osteopathic medical program in Ohio. You will have the opportunity to follow one of the two tracks to completion:

  • Attend three years at ODU and complete your remaining credits required for an ODU degree during your first year at OU-HCOM (3+4 track).
  • Complete your degree at ODU prior to attending medical school at Ohio University’s main campus in Athens or its satellite campuses in Cleveland or Dublin, Ohio (4+4 track).
