The Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) at New Mexico State University is one of the newest medical colleges in the United States and the only one with a mission focused on healthcare in the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico. Although BCOM is a private and free-standing college that is not a part of New Mexico State University (NMSU), it is very closely affiliated with NMSU and our students enjoy the student life and campus community benefits that come with a major public research university.
In a unique public-private partnership, BCOM’s students have access to all university facilities and services, such as athletics, intramural sports, student clubs and organizations and student health, counseling and learning resources. BCOM students can also utilize NMSU’s housing and meal services, at an additional cost. BCOM’s 80,000 square foot newly constructed building is located at the Arrowhead Research Park on the NMSU campus, adjacent to the football stadium.
