Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine at New Mexico State University (BCOM) is one of the nation’s newest medical colleges. BCOM is student-centered, utilizing the most advanced technologies and learning methods to assure student and professional practice success in all fields of medicine, from primary care to subspecialties.
BCOM employs an integrated, systems-based, applications-oriented approach, and is designed to provide graduates with the knowledge, skills and competencies necessary to succeed as osteopathic physicians. The curriculum uses several educational approaches, including: traditional lectures, integrative sessions (using electronic response systems), laboratory and skills instruction, active learning (adult and interactive techniques), team-based learning, large and small group sessions, directed study and clinical case presentations. These learning formats foster comprehension, promotes the application of knowledge, emphasizes competency in osteopathic philosophy, develops clinical skills, and stimulates critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
