Upcoming OSU Battelle Center SCOPEs

SCOPE stands for Student Community Of Practice and Engagement. These industry specific communities are built to give students the chance to discuss the latest topics, news, and technology of the day in crucial arenas while gaining access to professional development and mentorship opportunities. These communities are a chance for any student, no matter the focus of their studies, to get involved in industries with global impact that require an interdisciplinary approach.

Weekly SCOPE conversations feature discussion forums with faculty and staff leadership to help breach new horizons for the group. Learn more here.

Ohio University’s HCOM presents PreDOC program for undergrads

Ohio University’s Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (OU-HCOM) is excited to announce the launch of its new PreDOC program.

PreDOC, which stands for Pre-Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, is an undergraduate engagement program with the purpose of actively educating central Ohio undergraduates about osteopathic medicine and OU-HCOM, as well as connecting them to OU-HCOM students, staff, faculty, alumni and each other. The goal of PreDOC is to create a close-knit community of undergraduate students who are informed and excited about practicing osteopathic medicine and who feel closely connected to OU-HCOM, its mission, and its culture.

The program will hold a monthly session beginning in September and ending in May. PreDOC will be a standing program at OU-HCOM and we hope students will join us as they would a student organization at their home school.

Kickoff Event: Tuesday, September 22, 2020.
