Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine Reviews
I am currently attending the Graduate Certificate Program at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine - Virginia Campus. The purpose of this 2 semester graduate program is to help boost students' biomedical knowledge and academic resumes to increase students' chances of gaining acceptance to medical school. The program also has a guaranteed acceptance to one VCOM's three campuses if students meet their GPA and MCAT benchmarks at one of the three review times throughout the year. The classes taken during this one year program mimic classes taught in the medical school. By the end of the one year program, students have covered the vast majority of the information taught in VCOM's block 1 curriculum as well as a significant amount of fundamental information taught in other blocks. All of the classes are taught by medical school professors, so the content is highly challenging combined with quality, professional instruction. I love this program so far, as it is preparing me well for medical school by broadening my depth of knowledge while pushing me to develop successful study strategies. This program has greatly increased my self confidence in pursuing a career in medicine. I greatly appreciate that this program emphasizes the importance of trying out various rigorous study strategies and adapting the techniques to develop successful, sustainable habits. The program is successful in its mission, as I have recently been accepted to VCOM -Virginia Campus for Class of 2021. I highly recommend VCOM's Graduate Certificate Program to anyone who has had difficulty gaining acceptance to medical school and/or is taking a nontraditional route to medicine.
