The ARCOM Difference

The ARCOM Difference is…its curriculum!

The Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine utilizes an innovative “helix” curriculum comprised of lecture, team-based, and interactive learning strategies. Courses are integrated across all biomedical science courses each semester using a systems-based approach. Each turn of the helix revisits biomedical concepts learned from the previous semester and applies this newly acquired knowledge in order to understand more complex system interactions. The majority of the courses include a team-based learning component in which the students apply their knowledge in solving case-based problem scenarios. This type of educational tool has been shown to be particularly successful in keeping students engaged in their own learning while building critical thinking skills, team interaction, and medical professionalism.

The ARCOM Difference is…focused on student success!

ARCOM is focused on student success directed towards the development of competent, caring, and compassionate physicians who seek to serve the underserved. The entirety of the educational experience at ARCOM supports and encourages students to develop a pattern of individual responsibility and capacity for life-long learning and growth as competent, patient-centered, holistic osteopathic physicians.
