Accreditation Information

Kansas College of Osteopathic Medicine (KansasCOM) has been granted pre-accreditation status from the American Osteopathic Association’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA). COCA is the accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) for predoctoral education of osteopathic physicians in the United States.

Pre-accreditation, as distinct from full accreditation, permits the KansasCOM to solicit applications and admit students, offer medical instruction within the approved osteopathic medical curriculum, and announce its Pre-Accreditation Status. KansasCOM can be considered for full accreditation status following the graduation of its first class, which it anticipates will occur in May 2026. The attainment of full accreditation status is subject to review and approval by COCA.

Our Mission

The Mission of the Kansas College of Osteopathic Medicine is to train the Osteopathic physician of the future to provide effective, empathic, and innovative care to optimize the health of patients and their communities.

Our Vision

Utilize impactful educational methods and technology to train exceptional graduates who are known for service, empathy, and innovation to improve access to the highest standard of care for all.

To make our vision a reality, we have partnered with Medical Intelligence 10—a multidisciplinary advisory group for assessing artificial intelligence capabilities and strategies for health systems, health care companies, and medical schools. In our collaboration, we have created and integrated 11 modules into the KansasCOM curriculum that will train students to become future leaders in health care. These courses educate students on topics such as artificial intelligence, data science, and digital health—providing a foundation for success in any chosen career path in medicine.
