Expanding Horizons in Medical Excellence

From the beginning, Duquesne has been dedicated to building a better world. Our founders looked ever forward, envisioning the education needed to create a future everyone could share in.

Duquesne's bold venture now is to build a College of Medicine that will aspire to be among the most forward-thinking medical schools in the nation, addressing the two largest problems facing medicine today:

  • a shortage of doctors in primary care disciplines and
  • a system of pervasive disparities in health care, by racial and socio-economic dimensions, especially in underserved urban and rural communities. 

The Proposed Duquesne University College of Osteopathic Medicine will do this while creating a world-class education and commitment to excellence that will serve our students and all who they will serve in their future work.

Duquesne's College of Medicine will position the University as more than just a national leader in medical education-it will build on our long tradition of serving people on the margins and building a world where everyone can prosper.
