Play • 26 min

In April of 2022, the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic medicine or AACOM graciously invited the D.O. or Do Not podcast to attend their national meeting, “Educating Leaders” conference in Denver, Colorado. Our two producers, Lerone Cark, MS-II at the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine and Brooke Pillegi, MS-II at the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine, as well as Ben Berg, our pre-medical student liaison, attended the conference to continue our mission of promoting awareness of osteopathic medicine by interviewing leaders in the field.

We would like to thank Dr. Robert Cain, president of AACOM, Joseph Shapiro, director of media relations and Helene Cameron, Vice President of medical education services for having us at the conference and supporting the podcast. We had an amazing experience and would recommend the conference for any medical or pre-medical students interested in learning more about the inner workings of osteopathic medicine and osteopathic medical education.

On today's episode we talk with Dr. Laurie Curtin, the chief research and policy officer of the NRMP.  Dr. Curtin received her Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the University of Houston. With over 10 years of experience at NRMP, Dr. Curtin has helped to usher in some of the most substantial changes made to the match process, including the recent unification of D.O. and M.D. matches. In this episode, Dr. Curtin provides listeners, both medical students pre-meds, with valuable information about navigating the match and what to expect during the culmination of a medical student's education. We are extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to interview her and we hope you enjoy this episode.
