It is my pleasure to serve as the Dean & Chief Academic Officer for the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM). The college was founded with a sound mission to expand the healthcare workforce in New Mexico and the southwest. An experienced staff and faculty has been assembled and we have seated two classes of students that have brought diversity and scholarship to our campus.

During my tenure at BCOM, we will grow from this foundation to promote positive and inclusive servant leadership that aligns with the institutional mission and guiding principles. The transition will be seamless and transparent as we prepare for the next milestones in our development.

Our students, faculty and staff are working hard to contribute to our success as a learning organization as well as a place to learn. We welcome those who want to be the next members of our team to visit our campus and see the great things we are doing.

Don N. Peska, DO, MEd
Dean and Chief Academic Officer
