When osteopathic schools were forming throughout the country in the 1890s, two students at the Northern Institute of Osteopathy in Minneapolis—the Rev. Mason W. Pressly and Oscar John Snyder—targeted Philadelphia as a future home for an osteopathic college. The two doctors of osteopathy (DOs) followed through with their vision, incorporating Philadelphia College and Infirmary of Osteopathy (PCIO) on January 24, 1899. Today, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) trains highly competent, caring physicians, health practitioners and behavioral scientists who practice a "whole person" approach — treating people, not just symptoms.
PCOM offers graduate programs in the fields osteopathic medicine and pharmacy, among others.
