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.

FOCUS-Females of Chemistry Uniting Scientists

Hello students!
 
This year we have started a new student organization and seminar series, FOCUS – Females of Chemistry Uniting Scientists.
 
The purpose of this organization is to promote awareness and highlight scientific achievements of prominent females within the field of chemistry while motivating and encouraging other women, minorities, and members of the scientific community. Additionally, FOCUS will coordinate community outreach at local schools and social events. 
 
If you are interested in interacting with successful female chemists, other OSU students, or building your CV, please join us for the 1st general body meeting of FOCUS this Thursday, August 30, 2018 in CBEC 267 at 5:30 pm.
 
At our first meeting, we will be discussing open positions on the board, outreach events for Fall 2018, and begin planning our Spring 2019 seminar, featuring Dr. Rebecca Ruck (Merck Executive Director, Process Chemistry – a recent recipient of the ACS Award for Encouraging Women into the Chemical Sciences).
 
FOCUS is not limited to females, all that promote diversity within science are welcome!
