School Overview

School Info

The mission of the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine (AZCOM) Midwestern University (MWU) is to meet the contemporary societal need for physicians by emphasizing care and educational experiences needed to serve all communities. The curriculum provides an innovative academic foundation incorporating the philosophy of osteopathic principles and practices, striving to be fully integrated throughout the basic and clinical sciences, while promoting faculty development and research.

Curriculum

As scientists and practitioners of the healing arts, osteopathic physicians subscribe to a philosophy that regards the body as an integrated whole with structures and functions working interdependently. As an extension of this philosophy, osteopathic physicians treat their patients as unique persons with biological, psychological, and sociological needs an approach that underscores the osteopathic commitment to patient-oriented versus disease-oriented health care. In recognition of this approach, AZCOM has developed and continues to refine a four-year curriculum that educates students in the biopsychosocial approach to patient care, as well as the basic medical arts and sciences. Within this curricular format, AZCOM students spend their first two years both completing a rigorous basic science curriculum and preparing for their clinical studies. During their third and fourth years, students rotate through a variety of clinical training sites accruing an impressive 88 weeks of direct patient care experience.

Facilities

The 124-acre Glendale Campus boasts a scenic location situated 15 miles outside of downtown Phoenix. The new and attractive facilities on the campus include: the 64,000-square foot Sahuaro Hall that features lecture halls, conference rooms, and laboratory accommodations, the state-of-the-art Cholla Hall with two lecture auditoria, modern laboratories, multiuse classrooms, and a computer workshop, the Midwestern University Osteopathic Specialty Clinic, providing outpatient osteopathic manipulative medicine services, and the Cactus Club House for on-campus housing students.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
