- Tuesday, October 18th, from 4:45pm – 8:00pm.

Students planning to graduate need to submit a Graduation Application in The School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences (HRS) at least ONE semester prior to your planned graduating term. (ex. I plan to graduate in Spring 2023, then I need to submit this by beginning of Autumn 2022). The benefits of completing your graduation application earlier will result in you being listed as a “Graduating Senior” which can give an earlier enrollment window when you schedule courses for your final term.
If you have questions prior to completing your graduation application, please reach out to your Academic Advisor by calling 614-292-1706 to schedule an appointment.
- Once you submit your application:
- Your application will be processed in our system listing you as a Graduating Senior (this process takes several weeks);
- We will reach out to you via BuckeyeMail if any further information is needed;
- You can check the status of your graduation application here;
- Further information about commencement will be sent via BuckeyeMail during your graduating semester.
his is your invitation to apply to be part of the Interprofessional Community Scholars Program. This program involves students from different health-related professionals and pairs them with an older adult living in the Columbus community. The Interprofessional Community Scholars Program is a great opportunity to gain experience working in interprofessional teams to help the community. You will gain skills in professionalism, adaptability, and effective communication. Your participation in this program can help diversify your experiences for future applications for graduate programs or your careers.
As part of the program, you will assist older adults, who we refer to as Community Health Mentors (CHM), to enhance their digital health literacy skills, access needed community-based care, and identify and reach personal health and wellness goals, all while learning about teamwork, patient-centered care, and community health. Older adults share their experiences and provide feedback to help you become a better practitioner. There will be two weeks where you will be completing assignments that will prepare you for your visits with the CHM. After these two weeks, four visits will take place in the community, in which you will be working on a team that includes other 2-3 students and the CHM, to accomplish goals set by the CHM.
The deadline to apply for the program is Friday, September 9th. The visits with your assigned Community Health Mentor begin the week of September 26th and will occur throughout the Fall semester.
For more information, please see the attached items or reach out to Alaina Lotozo at Alaina.Lotozo@osumc.edu.

ASC Prehealth Advising, Arts & Sciences Center for Career and Professional Success and Student Life’s Career Counseling and Support Services will be collaborating to once again host a Virtual Mock MMI for prehealth students. This event will give students experience with the multiple mini interview (MMI) format before they begin interviewing with professional schools. We hope you will consider volunteering as an interviewer. Not familiar with the MMI? Click here for more information.
Here are the details:
- We plan to hold Virtual Mock MMI sessions on three dates, with two different sessions each date (provided we have enough interviewers!):
- Monday, September 26 at 10:30 am and 3:00 pm
- Tuesday, October 4 at 10:30 am and 3:00 pm
- Tuesday, November 1 at 10:30 am and 3:00 pm
- Each session will last approximately one hour for the interviews themselves and 15-20 minutes after for debrief/general feedback, so we are asking for 1.5 hours of your time.
- Interviewers will provide written feedback to the participants within 24 hours after the event. Members of the planning committee will facilitate the distribution of feedback to participants.
- We will be using Zoom for this virtual event.
You don’t need to have experience doing mock (or real) interviews in order to be a helpful and capable volunteer. Would you let me know by Wednesday, September 14 if you can help with the Virtual Mock MMI? If you can help, please let me know which session you can assist with (and if you can assist with more than one, you’re a rockstar!).
