  April 23, 2020: Exploring Osteopathic Medicine Webinar 

These event is strictly put on by AACOM to help students gain a better understanding of what osteopathic medicine is, what it means to be a DO, why students and physicians choose DO, and how to apply to DO schools.

Registration for Exploring Osteopathic Medicine for Pre-Meds 

June 10, 2020: AACOM will host a Choose DO Medical School Virtual Expo. This fair will be just like their January and August virtual events, in that all of their institutions will be invited to host a booth and interact directly with prospective medical students. This differs from our Exploring Osteopathic Medicine for Pre-Meds event listed above. The June 10 event is intended to be similar to a traditional, in-person recruitment event. More information and registration to come.
