Degrees at ICOM
ICOM educates Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine who utilize a distinctive whole-person approach to healthcare, and focus on the prevention of illness and injury. ICOM also offers three concurrent programs that help doctors specialize in Health Information Technology (MSHI), public health (MPH), and leadership and administrative roles (MHA). Learn more about our programs below.
Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO)
ICOM doctors offer the most comprehensive care available today. Trained to look at more than symptoms, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine seek to understand a patient’s lifestyle and environmental factors that affect their well-being. DOs practice medicine using the latest science and technology while considering options to complement pharmaceuticals and surgeries.
During preclinical years (1 and 2) ICOM students are introduced to osteopathic principles and foundational concepts in anatomy, biochemistry, genetics, cell biology, microbiology, immunology, physiology, pharmacology, and pathology. Clinical years (3 and 4) see student doctors assigned to their third-year core regional clinical site, where they will enter rotation and receive clinical experiences.
DO and Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA)
Physicians are increasingly assuming significant leadership and administration roles in the healthcare industry. Earning an MHA and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree will significantly expand your understanding of the business of medicine and prepare you to assume critical leadership positions now and in the future.
DO and Master of Public Health (MPH)
Public health professionals prepare to incorporate a focus on disease prevention through research, promotion of healthy lifestyles, implementation of educational programming, policy development, and administration and regulation of health systems and services. In alignment with the tenets of the osteopathic medical profession, ICOM’s MPH program seeks to integrate traditional osteopathic perspectives of holistic, people-centered medical care into the development of professionals suited for leadership.

Earning a Master of Science in Health Informatics (MSHI) degree along with a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree will enhance your understanding of Health Informatics concepts.
