Research Excellence At BCOM

BCOM has an international reputation for research excellence. BCOM staff have extensive published research in osteopathic and medical journals and our research laboratory is unique to UK osteopathic institutions. As part of their degree, our fourth year students carry out a research project and present it to their fellow students, tutors and an examiner from our partner institution, The University of Plymouth. This research project is also submitted to journals for publication. This year, research project topics included:
