Become a Better Kind of Caregiver

When you’re a doctor trained in the osteopathic method, you take a different approach to healing. You possess a complete medical education, but with an added layer of instruction and inquiry that equips you to treat the whole person. This philosophy lives through our collaborative culture, and it’s what will prepare you to lead the next generation of health care professionals.

 

Admissions Operations and COVID-19

As you are aware, COVID-19 has had a tremendous impact on colleges and universities across the country, as well as with travel and associated activities. In an effort to best protect the health, safety and well-being of Heritage College students, faculty and staff, we are operating from our homes at this time. We will begin transitioning back to campus in August 2021. Admissions interviews will be conducted virtually for the 2021-2022 cycle. Should you be selected for an interview, you will be provided with full details at that time. Additionally, campus tours are suspended, but we will still be hosting counseling sessions via Microsoft Teams. Lastly, in an effort to answer any application questions regarding the 2021-2022 cycle, the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine has provided this Letter to Future Candidates. Please thoroughly review this letter and the academic requirements before submitting your application. Thank you for your understanding during these trying times.
