Greetings and welcome to the web page for the Office of Admissions at Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM)! We hope that the information contained at this site will help you gain a better understanding of our college and answer any questions that you may have.
LMU-DCOM seeks to attract and train future medical practitioners to serve the needs of the southern Appalachian region. Additionally, we hope to address the looming national crisis in health care, created by a rapidly-expanding population, by adding highly-qualified physicians to underserved communities. We seek to achieve these goals by recruiting bright, hard-working applicants whose goal is to advance the science and art of medicine in these locations. It is our firm conviction that our graduates will be lifelong learners who will become leaders in their fields of endeavor and within their communities.
We believe that prospective students who have an interest in becoming physicians are mature individuals that are inquisitive, highly motivated, compassionate and eager to serve humanity. With this in mind, we believe that the application process is a meeting amongst professionals with the ultimate goal being mutual acceptance for mutual advantage. That is, we seek to learn about one another to determine if our goals are similar.
Ever mindful of the precariousness of life and health, medical students have committed themselves to one of the most demanding of professions. The decision to pursue such a profession is not, nor should it be, quick and easy.
Your decision-making process should be a long maturation process, by which you become educated about the medical profession, professional school training and – most importantly – yourself. You are, after all, considering a career which focuses on not only health maintenance but also the inevitable demise of the human body. The application process will help you and us to understand if you have the requisite academic preparation, temperament and desire to become a physician.
At LMU-DCOM students will receive a rigorous, demanding and rewarding medical education in a new, state-of-the-art facility by faculty who are national leaders in the profession with several decades of experience. The curriculum is a didactic, systems-based approach to learning based on the current state of the ever-expanding knowledge base. Our students will contribute to our exploration of the cutting edge of medicine.
Again, welcome to our web page. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact us at your convenience. We look forward to working with you in this process. Thank you for your interest in LMU-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine!
