Officials and supporters of a new medical college at the Auburn Research Park at Auburn University broke ground on the project Thursday.
The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) facility will be a state-of-the-art, four story building with more than 90,000 square feet adjacent to Auburn University’s main campus. Osteopathic physicians are licensed across the U.S. to practice the full scope of medicine, according to VCOM. They emphasize the body’s ability to heal itself, and therefore focus on disease prevention and nutrition.
