Outstanding Advancement in Osteopathic Medical Education

The Outstanding Advancement in Osteopathic Medical Education Award was developed this year by COSGP to allow students to recognize their osteopathic medical school for making a robust and durable change within their curriculum or for having instituted a novel and successful program in accordance with the osteopathic philosophy to advance their osteopathic medical education. As students, we wanted the opportunity to recognize everything done for our education by our osteopathic medical schools.

This year there were 17 exemplary nominations for this award but one stood above the rest. The winner of the 2015 Outstanding Advancement in Osteopathic Medical Education Award is Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine for their program “Art, Medicine and Observation”, developed by Dianna Silvagni, JD, Clinical Assistant Professor of Medical Education.

We would also like to extend an Honorary Mention to Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine for their Clinical Cadaveric Correlation.
