Welcome to the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Entering our fourth decade of excellence in osteopathic medical education in New England, we have proudly maintained our core mission while building an international reputation for innovation and for premier centers of excellence in neuroscience and pain research.

Recognized as one of the best regional universities in the Northeast by U.S. News & World Report, the University of New England offers a wide array of degree-granting programs in the College of Osteopathic Medicine and its partner colleges: the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Pharmacy, the College of Dental Medicine and the College of Health Professions.

While it may be hard to rival UNE's picturesque and tranquil location on Maine’s seacoast, our innovative “Patient-First Curriculum” and world renowned faculty contribute to dynamic and engaging educational programs that transform you into a professional who always puts the patient first.

We also have strong clinical education programs at major affiliate health care systems throughout New England and the Middle Atlantic States, an integrated program in simulation-based medical education, flexible distance education programs in biomedical sciences, medical education leadership and public health, and state-of-the-art laboratories for the study of human anatomy and osteopathic manipulative medicine. Our spectacular campus was further enhanced in 2014 with the opening of Leonard Hall. This is a classroom which allows us to present needed knowledge in an innovative fashion.

Thank you for your interest in the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. We look forward to your personal visit and welcome the opportunity to get to know you.
