Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine
Care Leads Here
At the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, care is at the heart of who we are. With a commitment to collaboration and a focus on osteopathic medicine, we train future primary care physicians and specialists to treat the whole patient, immersing them in osteopathic philosophy and practice from their very first days. Our approach to medicine and patient care emphasizes physician-patient relationships; prioritizes prevention and wellness; and considers a patient’s environment, beliefs, and values in their diagnosis, treatment, and care. Ultimately, we’re transforming how the next generation of health care leaders learn and how they deliver care to diverse patient populations.
