Her election gives GCSOM students a powerful voice within academic medicine at a national level.
The Organization of Student Representatives (OSR) represents medical students nationwide and provides an active role for students in advancing the AAMC mission to improve the nation’s health. Additionally, the OSR seeks to ensure that students actively participate in directing their education, preserving their rights, and delineating their professional responsibilities. The OSR gives medical students a voice in academic medicine at the national level and strives to foster student involvement and awareness in this arena at a local level. Each medical school class at Geisinger Commonwealth elects an OSR to represent them at AAMC meetings.
National delegates are elected by region assist regional chairs on OSR regional projects and initiatives. Bolock was elected a delegate for community and diversity. The regional officers also work on the five national committees to assist the OSR Administrative Board with national projects and interests.
