TOUCH stands for “Translating Osteopathic Understanding into Community Health.” This is a program started by COSGP to encourage osteopathic medical student involvement in community service activities. Through this program, students are recognized for their hard work and dedication in serving others during their years spent in medical school. The TOUCH year lasts from April to March and students are recognized based on the number of hours they accrue over the year. Each school has a top participant who receives the Platinum-level recognition. Students who complete 100 hours over the year receive a Gold-level recognition and students who complete 50 hours over the year receive a Silver-level recognition.
