Want to network with medical students from across the country? Interested in Medical Education or Academic Medicine here at Iowa and nation-wide? Looking for great role models who demonstrate Humanism in Medicine?
If so, BECOME AN AAMC OSR REP FOR IOWA! For details about the OSR (Organization of Student Representatives), see AAMC Organization of Student Representatives.
Locally, the OSR chapter meets to discuss issues affecting students including medical education, diversity, student affairs, and legislative issues. The OSR works closely with the Medical Student Government to improve The University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine experience/education for our student body. Four members of the local chapter are official OSR representative who receive regular communication from the national organization and are involved in national dialogue about issues affecting medical students.
Official representatives attend the National meeting in the fall and the Regional meeting in the spring and have the opportunity to run for national and regional offices and committee membership. Being an OSR rep is an outstanding opportunity to influence medical education in the US, meet students from across the country, and work to better understand and improve the healthcare system.
If interested in the OSR nationally or locally, contact one of the three representatives below.
Elections for future representatives will be held early this fall at the Medical Student Council Meeting. Please prepare a short speech. A resume is encouraged but optional.
Overall Goal: Improve the quality of medical education here at Iowa and across the country by exchanging ideas and best practices with students and faculty from around the country.
THE ELECTED OSR MEMBERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO RUN FOR REGIONAL OR NATIONAL POSITIONS. THESE POSITIONS ARE VIEWED WELL FOR MEDICAL STUDENTS CONSIDERING A FUTURE IN ACADEMIC MEDICINE.
Some of the leadership positions available include:
