Students

The WAOPS Student membership is FREE to osteopathic medical students enrolled at any AACOM-recognized osteopathic medical school or College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM).  

Osteopathic Student Forum
WAOPS, in conjunction with Pre-SOMA chapters across Wisconsin campuses, hosts an Osteopathic Student Forum which brings pre-med students from across the state together to learn and explore Osteopathic Medicine as a career choice. 

Update:Due to COVID-19, the Student Forum will not take place in 2022. Please check back late 2022 for the 2023 winter/spring event plans.

Osteopathic Physician Shadowing Opportunities
There are few better ways to understand Osteopathic Medicine than to shadow a practicing D.O. WAOPS continually looks to connect interested college students with Osteopathic Physicians who may be interested to have students shadow with them.   Please e-mail us if you are looking to shadow or interested in accepting students.

Update:Due to COVID-19, shadowing opportunities are on-hold until further notice. Please check back late 2022 for the 2023 winter/spring shadowing opportunities.  Meanwhile, students may want to visit the Pre-SOMA website below to learn about their Mentorship Program.
