VCOM - The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine
The United Company Foundation made a substantial pledge to VCOM. Payments will total $1 million dollars and were distributed over a 10 year period.
The purpose of the donation is to help VCOM support, to foster, and promote the growth, progress, and general welfare of the college.
The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) is a four-year osteopathic medical school offering the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree. Osteopathic physicians are licensed in every state to practice the full scope of medicine including examining patients, diagnosing illness, writing prescriptions, performing surgery, as well as providing musculoskeletal manipulation. Osteopathic physicians enter every field of medicine from family practice to neurosurgery. The majority of osteopathic physicians; however, practice primary care, with approximately one-fourth of the profession providing care in small communities and rural areas.
