To Serve the Underserved and Promote a Healthier Arkansas


On behalf of the Arkansas Colleges of Health Education (ACHE), it is my honor and privilege to welcome you to our institution and to offer you the opportunity to share in our vision for the promotion of health care and a healthy living environment in the State of Arkansas.

We are excited about our flagship facility, the Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine (ARCOM). While we will create a healthier Arkansas by graduating physicians within the most underserved region in the state, ARCOM is only the first in a series of colleges that will be created to serve the underserved. We will be breaking ground on our next college, the College of Health Sciences in the summer of 2018. Programs such as Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physician Assistance will be housed in this state-of-the-art 66,000 square foot facility.

At the Arkansas Colleges of Health Education, we invite you to join us as we not only change the direction of health care in Arkansas, but also the quality of life for people in the surrounding regions.
