Biological Sciences & Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, B.S./D.O.

Are you interested in pursuing a career as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine? SUNY College at Old Westbury has a program that enables you to complete 3 years towards your Bachelor of Science degree at Old Westbury and begin your first year of Medical studies at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYCOM).

This accelerated B.S./D.O. program requires admission both to SUNY College at Old Westbury and NYCOM. Students accepted into the program are assured admission to the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine provided that they maintain a minimum 3.50 grade point average, provide adequate scores on the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), and receive approval from NYCOM faculty following an interview to be conducted during the third year of the program. Students must also complete the regular pre-medical science courses within the first three years. Matriculation at NYCOM will occur in the fourth post-high school year.

Students in the program will receive their B.S. after one year in medical school and their D.O. after completing the normal 4-year medical school curriculum. The regular premedical course requirements, in addition to major program requirements and general education requirements, include courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, English and physics. The program is designed for students entering SUNY College at Old Westbury from high school. However, transfer into the program within the freshman year is possible if openings exist and applicants meet the initial continuing requirements.
