Computer Recommendations for BCOM Students

Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine is a bring-your-own-computer campus. A computer will be required for almost every element of your courses. Below you will find the Minimum and Recommended Specifications.

BCOM recommends the Lenovo Yoga C940 with Windows 10 Pro, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB Hard drive, other computers with similar specification may be acceptable – but students will be responsible for insuring compatibility.

A web camera, microphone, and wifi capabilities will be required. A touch screen / pen based computer is recommended for note-taking, image manipulation, and similar functions. While not a requirement – this option will enhance your experience, and allow you to interact with some of the 3D software more effectively.

Please note that an Apple iPad by itself is not sufficient for all aspects of the curriculum and exam administration.
