Online: New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University is dedicated to improving access to health care for the underserved and rural populations in Arkansas and the Mississippi Delta Region. Arkansas ranks near the bottom of states in overall population health status. The state also ranks near the bottom in the number of active physicians per capita and the number of primary care physicians. NYITCOM at A-State was established in 2016 with the mission of meeting the need for more physicians in this medically underserved area and providing health education programs to help improve outcomes in the state and region. NYITCOM at A-State is the first osteopathic medical school established in the state and the second medical school founded in Arkansas. The college, which serves as an additional location campus of NYITCOM in Long Island, New York, is located on the Jonesboro campus of Arkansas State University, the second-largest fourth-year institution in the state. The main NYITCOM campus in New York was founded in 1977 and is one of the largest osteopathic medical schools in the United States, with over 300 students per class and more than 7,500 graduates practicing in all 50 states and 18 countries.
