Open House Series

Join the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine (UNE COM) for our spring and summer virtual Open House Series. Learn how UNE COM transforms students into health care leaders who advance patient-centered, high-quality osteopathic care, community health, and research for the people of Maine, New England, and the nation. Our academic environment — and community — is one of collaboration and support among the student body, faculty members, and professional staff.

What is an Open House Series? Multiple opportunities to connect, engage and learn more about our program. At each event, dive deeper into what makes our college a special place to learn and grow. Hear from current students, faculty, and professional staff about our program, life at UNE COM, research opportunities, and more. At each Open House, you will:

  • Learn more about our program, mission, and philosophy (first hour of the event)
  • Chat with UNE community members (second hour of the event)

Below is the schedule for our Open House Series. Registration is required for each individual event. Most events will be recorded and shared following the live session.

Throughout Summer 2021, representatives from Recruitment and Admissions will be available to answer questions regarding applying to UNE COM. Topics of conversation may include basic application requirements, what our Committee on Admissions is looking for in an applicant, what it looks like interviewing with UNE COM, and so much more. We will also utilize this time to answer your questions, so please submit any and all questions for us in the registration form.

Bi-weekly sessions throughout the months of June, July, and August provide ample opportunities to connect with us, so please use this time whenever you need it. We do not plan to record these sessions, so if you miss an event don't hesitate to register for the next one or email us with questions that would have been covered in the session and for follow-up resources.

Campus Visits

Our Biddeford Campus is open for in-person campus visits. Prospective students and applicants can join us on our beautiful seaside campus to tour COM academic facilities like the OMM lab, lecture halls, and case-based learning rooms. Take a walk around campus to see dining and study areas, athletic facilities, and the COM student lounge. Email the UNE COM Recruitment Team at to schedule your visit. 

Visit dates and times are based on the availability of current students and professional staff. Walk-in visitors may not be afforded an opportunity to meet with professional staff and/or be provided a tour, so it is recommended to schedule your visit. Weekend visits are not offered.

We are committed to the safety of our visitors, students, faculty, and professional staff. As a guest, you have an important role to play in safeguarding the health of our community. Refer to UNE's COVID-19 Policy prior to your visit.

  • We strongly encourage all visitors to be fully vaccinated.
  • Visitors who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear masks while indoors.
