The Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine is the only medical college in the United States with a mission focused on healthcare in the Southwestern United States and its border with Northern Mexico. Although Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine is a private and free-standing college, it is very closely affiliated with New Mexico State University (NMSU) and our students enjoy the student life and campus community benefits that come with a major public research university.
In a unique public-private partnership, the College’s students have access to many university facilities and services, such as athletics, intramural sports, some health services, and recreational facilities. The College’s students can also utilize NMSU’s housing and meal services, at an additional cost. Burrell College’s 80,000 square foot newly constructed building is located at the Arrowhead Research Park on the NMSU campus, adjacent to the football stadium.
