Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale

AZCOM's patient-centered didactic curriculum and early clinical experiences prepare you for challenging clinical rotations with our strong medical partners throughout the Southwest region. Our professional clinical educators know it's important for you to follow them not only in hospitals but also in their private practices. And you'll see your value to a diverse population when you're able to put your skills to work in rural and underserved urban communities.
