AACOM is pleased to announce the selection of three exceptional osteopathic medical students to participate in its 2020 Osteopathic Health Policy Internship (OHPI) Program:

- Harris Ahmed, MPH (pictured middle), OMS-IV, Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine

As part of AACOM’s Leadership Institute, the OHPI Program enables osteopathic medical students to spend two months in Washington, DC, in AACOM’s Office of Government Relations on Capitol Hill. The objective of the program is to afford selected student interns the opportunity to develop an understanding and operational knowledge of how federal health care and higher education policy is developed, and how to effectively influence public policy.
