The NOSC is a once a year forum that allows all osteopathic medical students to voice their opinions on AOA House of Delegates resolutions that affect students, residents and the osteopathic profession. The caucus was started over 10 years ago and is an event that COSGP hosts with leaders from different student organizations including the Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA), the Student American Academy of Osteopathy (SAAO), and the American Medical Student Association (AMSA).
The resolutions for discussion are selected based on their impact on students/residents, ability to warrant discussion, and effect on medical education. After the caucus, student leaders from these different organizations form an executive board that will deliberate each resolution based on the comments made during the caucus. The national student opinion will be based on these deliberations with the final official opinion then distributed to all students to use at the AOA House of Delegates.
Please plan on joining us in July! Watch for the announcement on the events calendar.
