The first year of medical school is an exciting time for every student! To help make this transition as smooth and successful as possible the OOA created a mentor program. This initiative partners practicing osteopathic physicians with first year medical students to help cultivate a professional relationship that will benefit the students immensely. The OOA and OSU-COM’s Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA) host a banquet every fall to welcome the new class of medical students and introduce them to their mentors. We encourage every student to invest time and truly learn from their mentors. The professional relationships developed will benefit both the mentor and mentees in years to come.
