In the spirt of collaboration with colleges of medicine around the country, the ACOI hosts virtual student monthly leadership meetings open to all 46 ACOI student internal medicine clubs throughout the nation. The Student Osteopathic Leadership in Internal Medicine and Dialogue (SOLID) program hosts presentations and subsequent discussions designed to bring college medical club leaders and medical students together with ACOI leadership and mentors. These meetings are free of charge for all ACOI student members.
Inspired by the success of both ACOI’s Virtual Visiting Professors Program and the student education programming offered annually as part of the ACOI Annual Convention & Scientific Sessions, the goal of the SOLID program is to connect more frequently with chapters and to help osteopathic internal medicine students be successful.
The program provides students support to navigate some of the most common hurdles and stressors they face, such as passing board exams and developing research programs. The monthly education sessions and interactions focus on a variety of topics that assist club leaders in building strong supportive clubs, as well as leverage thought leadership from other ACOI student chapters throughout the country.
