Academic Review & Progression

Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine

Two faculty committees of the medical school review the academic performance of students: the Pre-Clinical Promotions Committee for the pre-clinical years and the Clinical Promotions Committee for the clinical years.

Course Credit
Course credits are generally determined according to the following formulation: one credit is assigned to a course for three laboratory contact hours per week; two contact hours per week involving interactive group problem-solving or discussion sessions; or one contact hour of formal lecture per week. One and one-half credits are given for each week of clinical rotations.
