Changing the World Aligned Healthcare Education for Tomorrow

Our Purpose

Salud Global Education develops new colleges of medicine and health sciences to address critical shortages of physicians and healthcare professionals. We improve access to quality healthcare in underserved areas and build stronger, healthier communities.

A joint undertaking by higher education veterans and leading authorities in medical education, Salud is purpose-built to address the looming physician shortages. Each project is specifically aligned to increase physician diversity, and improve access to care.

What We Do

Salud develops new medical schools to improve community health outcomes, expand doctor training capacity in areas with demonstrated need, and diversify the physician workforce.

Our team identifies strong markets for medical schools and conducts an initial feasibility and clinical capabilities analysis. We establish partnerships with key community stakeholders, including health systems and educational institutions, and raise the required funding to launch each project. The leadership team at Salud manages all initial set up and on-going activities including: licensure, accreditation, operations, financial, regulatory, real estate, capitalization, governance, student success, and future program growth.

Osteopathic Medicine 101

Osteopathic Medicine and the approach of “whole person care” has been in practice since the 19th century. Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs), like their peers from allopathic medical schools (MDs), are fully licensed physicians authorized to prescribe medication and perform surgery.  Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine are graduate institutions of higher education, licensed in their home state and accredited by the American Osteopathic Association’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA), a U.S. Department of Education recognized accreditation agency to award the DO degree.

Students take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) following completion of undergraduate education to apply for medical school. Upon completing the program, graduates take medical licensing exams. DO graduates then enter medical residencies of three to six years for most practice areas before completing board certification.

Our Values

Everyone deserves the right to comprehensive quality healthcare.

Sharing our knowledge

Addressing the Physician Shortage

Ensuring access to basic medical care for everyone requires the training of more qualified professionals.

Patient-Centered Care
