In conjunction with its recent Annual Meeting, the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) hosted a Health Professions Recruitment Fair on Saturday, March 31. The event featured more than 30 information booths representing colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs), student organizations, other organizations, and AACOM.

Nearly 400 high school, college and post-baccalaureate students; teachers; counselors; and administrators attended the fair to learn more about osteopathic medical education (OME) and other health professions education opportunities.

The Recruitment Fair featured six free workshops focused on topics such as the medical school application process and life as an osteopathic medical student, and current medical students demonstrated Osteopathic Manual Medicine (OMM) techniques. Many pre-med students said they were impressed with the networking opportunities and advice offered at the event. One attendee said, “Usually the fairs are overwhelming and intimidating, but there were so many helpful people [here]. I enjoyed being able to talk at length with many admission directors and medical students.”
