BCOM is one of the nation’s newest medical colleges. It was established in 2013 with a mission to improve the health of the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico by increasing the size and diversity of the physician workforce. BCOM is studentcentered, utilizing the most advanced technologies and learning methods to assure student and professional practice success in all fields of medicine, from primary care to subspecialties.
BCOM’s new state-of-the-art building showcases the very best in educational design, including large and small classrooms, student group study pods, outdoor courtyards, hybrid gross-virtual anatomy laboratory, OMM laboratory, medical library and a comprehensive simulation center, which includes high-fidelity mannequins in ICU/OR/ED/OB settings and standardized patient facility.
BCOM’s location at Arrowhead Park is a key anchor for growth and development of our planned healthcare and technology industry cluster. The synergy between BCOM, our early college high school facility focusing on medical and healthcare careers, and our other sector tenants provides a fertile ground for positive impact to our region’s health and economic well-being through education, workforce development, research, and job growth.
