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.
