3/4 Cooperative Degree with the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYCOM)

Enrolling at SUNY Geneseo in our 3/4 Osteopathic Medicine Program with the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM) will allow you to receive your DO (osteopathic physician) Degree in an accelerated 7 years, rather than the typical 8 year period.

If you are accepted into this Program, you need to be a BS Biology major and complete all of the program requirements except for electives in Biology during your first three years at Geneseo. After this, you will transfer to NYITCOM. Credits from your first year in the program at NYITCOM will transfer back to Geneseo to complete your BS degree in Biology, and after 4 years at NYITCOM, your DO is awarded.

To apply, simply complete either the preferred Common Application ( or the SUNY Application. The deadline for submission of all application materials is January 1. We recommend you begin the application process 4-6 weeks prior to that date. It is important that you clearly indicate on your application that you wish to be considered for the 3/4 Osteopathic Medicine Program at Geneseo.
