The combined Bachelor of Science/Doctor of Osteopathy (BS/DO) program between the University of Hartford (UH) and the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine (UNECOM) provides a unique opportunity for students with career goals in osteopathic medicine. The accelerated program typically allows for the completion of the BS/DO degrees in a seven-year period. The BS/DO is for the academically outstanding student with a strong, realistic motivation toward the osteopathic medicine profession. Initial study at the University of Hartford allows the student to complete the general education and basic science requirements for the BS Health Science degree, and the prerequisites necessary for osteopathic medical school. The BS degree is awarded by the University of Hartford following the successful completion of the first year of graduate study. Students who are not in the accelerated program typically complete the BS degree in four years at the University of Hartford.
The osteopathic medicine program requires four years of combined academic and clinical training leading to the DO degree, which is a prerequisite for licensure eligibility in the United States. UNECOM provides students with an accredited four-year professional osteopathic medicine curriculum.
