The Via College of Ostaeopathic Medicine (VCOM) in Blacksburg has opened a new Academic Sports and Osteopathic Medicine. It is a community based practice and teaching site for VCOM students and family medicine residents at Montgomery Regional Hospital.
In center, cutting the ribbon, are Dr. Joy Palmer and Dr. Mark Rogers, physicians at ASOM. To Rogers’s left is Dr. Dixie Tooke-Rawlins, Dean of VCOM. To Palmer’s right is Dr. Jan Willcox, vice dean of VCOM.
The new Academic Sports and Osteopathic Medicine (ASOM) practice currently has six exam rooms and a welcoming and inviting medical space for patients. While APCA will continue to see primary care patients, those seeking physician services at ASOM will primarily seek treatment for sports and other musculoskeletal issues. Physicians at APCA and ASOM will continue to work in conjunction with each other and VCOM students will train in both sites.
