Medical course work began at The University of South Dakota in September of 1907 with the organization of the College of Medicine. The original curriculum consisted of two years of premedical work and two years of medicine. Since then, the School of Medicine has greatly expanded and The University of South Dakota is the only university in the state of South Dakota to offer the Medical Doctor Degree and degrees in Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Physician Assistant Studies.
