Overall, how satisfied are you with this program?

2 out of 10

What do you like most?

"Boards passing rates are well above average. School is located close enough to Chicago so highly self-motivated students can often find opportunities to work with faculty from other medical schools. Support for research is well above average for an osteopathic school. Student culture is collaborative and very supportive of each other, not competitive. Some faculty are very caring, particularly anatomy." Report Response

What do you like least?

"While I am grateful for the opportunity to become a doctor, I would recommend others stay away from CCOM if you have other options. Most student seem to believe the university administration is 100% in it for the money. Tuition is astronomical (2nd most indebted students behind Midwestern in Arizona, according to US News and World Report), support for board prep, matching advice, specialty mentorship is extremely limited. 0 African American students matriculated from at least 2015-2020 according to AACOM Report on Matriculants. Overall, if this is your only option, you will get a fine education and become a good doctor. That being said, students are mostly unhappy with their experience largely due to the micromanagement of university-wide administration and poor support for career aspirations." Report Response
