New Pipeline Program Posts Impressive Results
DO-ABLE, a pipeline program that provides undergraduate and GSBS pre-medical students with an inside look at the medical student experience at SOM, has completed its first nine sessions with impressive results. Developed by OMS-4 Taiwo Temitope Ajumobi and GSBS students Karon Millar and Hina Mujadad, the program has hosted 38 GSBS students and eight Rowan undergrads since its inception. Each daylong session included time to explore the online "Introduction to Osteopathic Medicine" course, attend a lecture or Problem Based Learning class, shadow a current medical student in the OMM lab, and meet with representatives from the SOM Admissions office. Attendees also completed pre- and post-program assessments that gauged their understanding of osteopathic medicine
In April, Student Doctor Ajumobi will present research results at the 2019 AACOM annual conference showing that 99 percent of participants demonstrated an increase in knowledge and understanding of osteopathic meidcine and osteopathic medical school as a result of their attendance.
