Greetings to All Osteopathic Medical Students,
Four times a year, the Student Government presidents elected by each of the osteopathic medical schools across the country come together to share ideas and gain knowledge to disseminate to their student peers. During the summer meeting, this group of students collectively making up the Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents (COSGP), a council of the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM), hosts the National Osteopathic Student Caucus (NOSC)
, which is an incredibly important event open to all U.S. osteopathic medical students.
The NOSC precedes the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) House of Delegates (HOD), during which time the policy standards of the osteopathic medical profession are voted on by representatives of the profession. The NOSC provides students with the opportunity to make their voices heard on resolutions regarding policy matters directly affecting them.
The NOSC will take place Wednesday July 20, 2016 at 6:30 PM
at the Courtyard Marriott Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago. Registration is now open!
The NOSC is a closed event, open to osteopathic medical students only. Together we will form a collective voice to affect health policy for our profession. This is a key opportunity for you to join your peers, speak up, and create change!
For students who are unable to attend, we will broadcast the event through the AACOM webinar service. All participating students will have the opportunity to interact, comment, and vote.
To attend the 2016 NOSC, be sure to register
before the deadline at midnight on Wednesday, July 13, 2016
. Please indicate whether you will attend in-person or online. An agenda, the resolutions for review, and the link and instructions to access the broadcast system will be emailed one week prior to the event. Don't forget to register before midnight on Wednesday, July 13, 2016.
Please feel free to contact me or your Student Government representative if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing many of you at the 2016 NOSC!
Sincerely, Whitney Wolfe, OMS III
