Osteopathic 4+4 Program

Why study osteopathic medicine at Geneseo?

The 4+4 osteopathic medicine program is a partnership program with New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM). Students earn a four-year BS in biology degree from SUNY Geneseo; after that, admission to NYITCOM’s program requires an interview plus GPAs and MCAT scores that meet the school’s requirements. The four-year program at NYITCOM culminates in a DO (doctor of osteopathic medicine) degree.


DOs subscribe to the “whole person” approach to medicine—treating the entire person rather than just the symptoms. While trained in medicine like other physicians, DOs will combine that with a variety of hands-on treatments as well as a focus on preventative care.

Program Options

Program Highlights

  • Abbreviate NYITCOM’s admissions process by skipping the first few application steps. 
  • Assure a guaranteed seat as long as GPA, MCAT, and interview requirements are met. 

Sample Specializations

Many DOs are primary care physicians, but they can specialize in any area of medicine, including pediatrics and surgery.
