Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine started a $5 million venture capital fund that will make investments focused on primary care, the college said Friday.

The money for the Primary Care Innovation Fund came from the school’s foundation, PCOM said.

The fund will consider investing in companies nationwide, but will concentrate on the Philadelphia region and on the Atlanta region, where PCOM has a branch campus.

Dean Miller, CEO of the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital & Technologies and a partner at private investment firm Evergreen Industries, will manage the PCOM fund.

The PCOM fund has not yet made any investments. More information can be found by visiting www.pcom.edu/innovation-fund/ or emailing Miller at dmiller@pcominnovationfund.com.
