College officials enter agreement with PCOM Georgia

LaGrange College recently entered a partnership with PCOM Georgia in Suwanee, a private not-for-profit educational institution offering doctoral and master’s degrees in health care.

The affiliation agreement guarantees positions for up to three LaGrange College students who meet requirements for each of PCOM Georgia’s DO (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) and PharmD (Doctor of Pharmacy) programs.

PCOM Georgia is a branch campus of Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, established in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1899. The college also has an additional campus in Moultrie, Georgia.

“We are thrilled to work with one of the nation’s oldest medical schools,” said LaGrange College President Susanna Baxter. “I look forward to hearing success stories from PCOM Georgia regarding students coming from LaGrange College.”

“For LaGrange College, this is an opportunity to provide additional pathway options for our students,” said Dr. Brian Peterson, vice president for academic affairs. “This is what LaGrange does best: provide a rigorous education in the liberal arts that will prepare students for graduate programs like these. We’re excited about beginning this partnership and developing it into the future.”

LaGrange College students who attend PCOM Georgia will continue to experience the benefits of a small campus focusing on student success. Both the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and the Doctor of Pharmacy programs offer state-of-the-art learning facilities and interprofessional education opportunities, culminating in a diverse and vibrant learning environment empowering students to reach their full potential.
