Welcome to the D.O. or DO not podcast, my name is Ben Berg, I am a “nontraditional’ premedical student who graduate from the albany University and am now doing post graduate work at Hunter College in New York to get ready to apply to Osteopathic School for the 2023 application cycle. I was lucky enough to attend AACOMs “Educating Leaders 2022” conference in Denver, Colorado. Attending the conference afforded me an incredible week of lectures, networking, and it was overall a great experience which I would recommend to any premedical student. Attending the conference as a representative of the podcast, it was an incredible opportunity to be surrounded by great osteopathic physicians as well as administrators. Speaking for me personally, this experience truly affirmed my desire to become an osteopathic physician. The reason for the trip was so that I represent the Premedical student perspective and share my experience with our premedical listeners who are interested in osteopathic medicine - and that is what we are going to do in this episode.
Tune in to listen to Ben Berg, our pre-medical student liaison, interview Dr. Helene Cameron PhD. Dr. Cameron serves as the Vice President of Undergraduate Medical Education Services for AACOM (American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine). In this interview Dr. Cameron offers insight into how AACOMAS (AACOM Application Service), which is a subsidiary of AACOM, works to help pre-medical students get into osteopathic medical school; as well as providing some crucial information and dates about the upcoming application cycle.
