The University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine was one of eight osteopathic medical schools to be listed in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Medical Schools” rankings.

UNE COM was specifically recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a leader in primary care. UNE COM Dean Jane Carreiro, D.O., explained in The DO, a publication from the American Osteopathic Organization, that preparing students for primary care begins in the admissions process and continues throughout a UNE COM education.

“Beginning in year one, clinical experiences expose students to a wide range of patients in primary care settings,” Carreiro said. “Additional immersion experiences in rural and underserved communities throughout the first and second year give students opportunities to work as primary care providers in interprofessional teams. Our Care of the Underserved Pathway (CUP) Scholar program helps students learn about and experience the many challenges facing these populations and the vital role primary care doctors play in solving them. Innovative programs that team the students with geriatric mentors reinforce the ongoing patient-physician relationship of primary care.”
