March 9, 2016

image004Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TouroCOM) Harlem students traveled to Albany to participate in the annual Medical Society of the State of New York Advocacy Day, where they met with legislators and advocated for a variety of issues important to medical students and doctors.

Their agenda included proposing new legislation to ensure clinical clerkship slots for New York State medical students, and advocating that international medical schools be required to meet or exceed American medical education standards.

They also supported legislation calling for transparency in the healthcare profession and opposed state legislation that would permit expanding the scope of retail clinics.

This year’s Advocacy Day was supported by the New York State Osteopathic Medical Society (NYSOMS).
