OSMA Welcomes New Student Members Every August
The future of medicine has arrived.  Some 140 first-year OU College of Medicine students are now in Oklahoma City with 26 in Tulsa.  OSMA officers and leaders and PLICO hosted welcome events with friendly faces, food and resources. State President Sherri Baker, MD; Oklahoma County President Don Wilber, MD; and Tulsa County President Peter Aran, MD, reassured students about the road ahead.  Each also alerted them to the importance of alignment with their County Societies and Oklahoma State Medical Association.  They advised that practicing medicine involves far more than seeing patients and commended OSMA for having doctors’ backs when it comes to legislative, payment, legal and public health issues. Medical Student section representatives Brady Iba, John Carradini, MSII and Mohamed Eslam, MSII gave ringing endorsements for involvement. Each has already experienced the value of mentorships and participation in advocacy initiatives.  We welcome our newest members in the OU College of Medicine Class of 2019!
