Office of Recruitment, Student, and Alumni Services

The University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine's Office of Recruitment, Student & Alumni Services is designed to meet your needs beginning when you undertake your search for a medical school, and continuing through your joining the ranks of UNE alumni. The office is considered a one-stop shop for myriad needs and issues.

If you are a prospective student, we are eager to help you learn more about our college through regional receptions, campus visits, and admission interviews. Once you are admitted, we work with you in the areas of leadership development, student organization support, personal support, event planning, and more. After you earn your degree with us, you will find great value in the efforts we make to ensure you remain connected to the COM community.

If you have a simple question or a more complicated need, we hope to be able to assist you. Feel free to contact us at comsa@une.edu or 207-602-2329. We consider our office a one stop shop — meaning that if we don't have an answer for you, we'll get one.
