GENERAL INFORMATION

HISTORY

The Larkin Health Sciences Institute has evolved from the operation of Larkin Hospital, a community-based

hospital that prides itself as a "teaching hospital" and has the largest Osteopathic Medical Doctor training residency in the United States. As health-care began to change with the increased need of medical doctors and other healthcare professionals, Larkin saw itself as the center of what was most needed for the education of the new healthcare professional-access to experiential training.
