Osteopathic Medical Education – The Student Perspective

The COSGP recently presented to attendees of the AACOM/AODME Annual Conference regarding our research in osteopathic medical education, student perspectives on OMM and licensing examination preparation and outcomes in addition to providing an overview for resources and opportunities we’ve provided students this past year to supplement their osteopathic medical education. The presentation can be viewed here. Please note the data provided is from a very preliminary analysis and is a very small portion of our findings. We are hoping to more formally share all our findings in the future. Please feel free to contact our medical education representative at COSGPMedEd@gmail.com with any questions!

OMM Student Perspective Survey – Please Participate!

Hello Osteopathic Medical Student,

The College of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents (COSGP) is the student group of AACOM, comprised of two of the elected student government leaders from each osteopathic medical school. The COSGP Medical Education committee is comprised of some of the student representatives from COSGP and we would like your help! We are conducting a quick survey on your experience with Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM). Your participation will help us to better understand current OMM education and student perspectives toward OMM. The survey is anonymous, but we ask that your response is as accurate as possible. This survey is optional and no students are required to participate. Please note, any surveys less than 50% complete will not be able to be used in our research so please fill out as much as you can! Here is the link to the survey. Please complete the survey by Sunday, April 12.

Thank you so much for you help. Please visit our website COSGP.org for resources and other information about your representation at the national level. Here you may find the results of the recent Resources and Advice survey with resources and advice listed individually for each basic science course and clinical rotation, further separated by the OMS year providing the information. If you have any questions please e-mail me at: COSGPMedEdRep@aacom.org

Thank you,

Danielle Maholtz, OMS-IV

COSGP National Medical Education Representative
