Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine (RVUCOM) is an American Osteopathic Association (AOA) accredited program of study. Graduation from an AOA Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA) accredited college of osteopathic medicine is required in order to begin training in an AOA or ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) residency program to which he or she has been accepted, and to take the COMLEX-USA Level 3 examination. The RVUCOM program meets the educational degree completion requirements for applying for licensure in all 50 states and the U.S. Territories.
RVU strongly encourages students to determine any additional requirements for licensure in the state in which they seek to practice osteopathic medicine. Students should refer to the individual state licensing bodies, as well as the Federation of State Medical Boards or the Physician Licensing Service for requirements for licensure.
The RVU Physician Assistant Studies program is provisionally accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA), and the educational degree completion requirements meet the qualifications for taking the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE) for PA certification.
