2019 Choose DO Medical School Expo
Thursday, April 11, 2019, 5:00 – 9:30 PM ET
The 2019 Choose DO Medical School Expo is a free event for students interested in learning more about the medical profession and how to strengthen their medical school application. Join us for this special, in-depth look at the osteopathic medical profession and what it means to be an osteopathic physician (DO). Presentations will be provided by an osteopathic physician, medical school admissions representatives, representatives from the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM), and current medical students. After presentations, a medical school fair with representatives from over 30 of our colleges of osteopathic medicine will be held. Students will be able to ask questions and introduce themselves to admissions staff from the colleges.
