Why you should attend?

RVU has the distinction of having the highest number of students on military scholarships of any civilian medical school in the country. Our military students in the college of osteopathic medicine participate in a military medicine track including a one week training with Strategic Operations using the surgical cut suit (a human worn surgical simulator that simulates the look, feel and smell effects of severe traumatic events.). RVU does not charge an application fee for active duty (or veterans) or their family members. We host events such as military appreciation and have a special commissioning ceremony as part of commencement.
