What You’ll Learn
With the Life Sciences, B.S./Osteopathic Medicine, D.O., you’ll earn your Bachelor of Science in Life Sciences and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in just seven years.
You’ll spend three years studying on a core of biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, microbiology, cell and molecular biology while working alongside professors on active research projects. You can also take advantage of symposia and courses sponsored by NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine to familiarize yourself with osteopathic medicine and our medical faculty.
Then, you’ll apply to transition into the four-year clinical education program for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. Our program emphasizes the holistic nature of medicine, helping you develop the complex and critical behavioral, social, and clinical skills required for a successful osteopathic practice. You’ll study all factors—from the anatomical to societal—that can affect the nature of illness, suffering, and patient outcomes.
Clerkships in the third and fourth years provide a variety of clinical exposures and experiences, from one-on-one preceptorships in a physician’s private practice to serving as team members in tertiary care hospitals.
