Huge Step Forward For Dothan

July 23, 2013

On July 29th, a brand new medical school opens in Dothan at the Southeast Alabama Medical Center.

The $40 million Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine will open with 162 students in the inaugural class as it ramps up over four years to 600+ students.

Some factoids:

  • 57% of the incoming students are from the southeast
  • 8% from the northeast
  • 14% from the midwest
  • 10% from the southwest
  • and 11% from the west

We anticipate that several of the medical students and families will be Jewish, adding even more “sparkle” to the growing, exciting, local Jewish community !
