The Costin Institute for Osteopathic Medical Educators is an academic program specifically designed for osteopathic medical personnel currently involved in teaching or academic management, as well as those aspiring to a career in medical academe.

The Costin Institute at Midwestern University trains osteopathic physicians and medical educators to become more effective teachers by providing a realistic 'job preview' for DOs and medical educators considering a career move in to academic medicine. Participation in the program demonstrates your desire to become a more effective medical educator and enhances the skills required for success.

The Costin Institute was established at Midwestern University in 2003 through an endowed contribution from the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation. It is named in honor of J. Richard Costin, D.O., one of the osteopathic profession's leading surgeons and teachers of general surgery. Dr. Costin is a 1949 graduate of Midwestern University's Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine (CCOM). Dr. Costin served as chairman of the board of CCOM and participated in the transition from a single college into a full university with five colleges.
