What We Do

The primary goal of the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine's Office of Recruitment, Student & Alumni Services is to help prospective and current students as well as alumni. The information on this page will give you a snapshot of what we do; however, it certainly is not all-inclusive. If you have a simple question or a more complicated need, we hope to be able to assist you. Please 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.

We're here to help you succeed!
