At its April 6-8, 2017 meeting, the American Osteopathic Association’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA) reviewed and accepted the Initial Comprehensive site visit report from the January 25-27, 2017 visit to the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine, located in Buies Creek, NC.
The COCA, voted to accept the site visit report with amendments and granted Campbell full accreditation status.
Accreditation status is the highest level of accreditation awarded, and confers all rights and privileges of accreditation.
“Achieving full accreditation of our medical school is the glowing result of more than five years of tremendous work by dean, John Kauffman, vice dean, Mike Mahalik, and many others at Campbell Medicine,” said Dr. Mark Hammond, vice president for academic affairs and provost at Campbell. “We celebrate this pinnacle achievement and are extremely grateful for all who made it possible.”
Dr. John M. Kauffman, Jr., founding dean of Campbell Medicine, upon learning this news, said, “We are pleased and elated to have reached this milestone in our accreditation journey.”
