Postgraduate Placement

We are the first medical school partnering with 12 community health centers offering early clinical educational experience in rural/urban and underserved populations.  We prepare our students to be competent, compassionate, community- and research-minded physician leaders focused on whole person healthcare. 

SOMA students are highly competitive in American Osteopathic Association (AOA), Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and military residency programs.  This chart below shows the number of graduates obtaining residencies in each type of program, and the number of graduates unable to obtain placement in an accredited program.
