About Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine

The Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM) is a comprehensive, four-year osteopathic medical college located in Dothan, Alabama. ACOM, the academic division of the Houston County Health Care Authority, is affiliated with Southeast Alabama Medical Center (SAMC) in Dothan, a 420-bed regional medical center. SAMC serves more than 600,000 residents in a 75-mile radius and has more than 2,500 employees and an active medical staff of 300.

After careful research and examination, AMEC and the Houston County Health Care Authority, the operator of Southeast Alabama Medical Center (SAMC), determined that it would be feasible for the state to develop its own college of osteopathic medicine to address the shortage of primary care physicians in the state. Thus, the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM), a non-profit, private institution, was established in May 2010.
