    Hi everyone,
    I first wanted to share that I was at the AOA's conference on End of Life Issues this past weekend. The doctor I shadow took me with her (I'm pre med). I had the priveledge of meeting the new Dean of CCOM--Dr. Karen Nichols. What a wonderful and inspirational lady she is!!!! I toured CCOM while I was there and I have a few questions for those of you who go there now. I noticed that the literature states that CCOM's curriculum is very traditional---problem-based learning has not been implemented. Also, classes run from 8-4pm daily. I was just wondering if some of you could share your experiences there...and if you're happy with the curriculum and hours etc. Any news on changes to be made in the future??? CCOM was great...and the facilities great as well. Thanks for any input. Anna :)

    She was Division Director of IM here at AZCOM, in addition to being past AOMA (Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association) president, AOA Board of Trustees, vice president, etc., etc., etc.
    She is a very influential person in the various osteopathic organizations. :cool: :cool: :cool:

    Hi there name is John and i just started my 3rd year of med school here at CCOM....if you have any qualms about comming to CCOM, forget them, this is a great campus, the curriculum is outstanding, there is nothing better bar-none.....

    yes, classes are usually from 8am - 4pm, but don;t sweat is nice to have a nice and organized lecture schedule....

    the fmaily medicine department has made some real adjustments to the curriculum too so that there is going to be a lot more clinical contact options during your first two years on campus...I suggest tha you talk to Dr Sefchek about tha many changes he is making on campus....this place it GOING places and you will want to be a part of this institution!

    if you have any other questions, please contact me whenever you want
