Listed below are the full-time faculty members in the College of Osteopathic Medicine. A number of community physicians also participate as adjunct professors.

All faculty members keep an open door policy for student access. Although every student is assigned a faculty advisor to help with problems or questions, any faculty member is available for help with a course question. No specific office hours are kept as instructors are available throughout the school day. Many basic sciences faculty members have research laboratories. Students with an interest in research are encouraged to participate in projects.
