In 1892 in Kirksville, Missouri, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still founded the first osteopathic medical school in the world. It was originally named American School of Osteopathy, but is now known as the A.T. Still University Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM). ATSU-KCOM is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, a commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). In 1892 Still hired William Smith, a formally trained Scottish physician, to serve as the first anatomy professor of the school. Several other early osteopathic schools eventually merged with Still's school including the Atlantic School of Osteopathy (1898-1905), which had been based in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania and then Buffalo, New York.

ATSU's main campus is located on 150 acres in Kirksville, Missouri. Kirksville's population is more than 17,000 and is approximately 180 miles to Kansas City and 214 miles to St. Louis.

Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine - ATSU-KCOM trains osteopathic physicians and grants the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree. ATSU-KCOM offers a two-year master's degree in biomedical sciences for students interested in health science careers in medicine, education, or research.
