Check out the OSMA Brochure Welcome to the Office of Student and Multicultural Affairs (OSMA)! We are dedicated to helping you reach your full potential personally, professionally and academically by building community and offering a strong infrastructure of innovative student services, programs and resources designed to support you in becoming culturally competent, empathetic, patient-centered and ethical physicians.
We will be by your side throughout your medical school journey, from Orientation through Graduation and beyond! For some of you, this journey started back in high school or college as you participated in our summer pipeline programs. For others, we may have met you on recruiting trips, interviewed you, hosted you during Second Look or inducted you into medical school at the White Coat Ceremony. Even after Match Day, Hooding and Graduation have passed and you are well into your residency or practice, we hope that you will stay in touch and involved as Alumni. We hope that this site will help you learn more about our many programs and initiatives. If you have any questions, ideas or concerns, please feel free to contact us or just stop by GB 3300!
