— Katie Maurer, M.D. and Ph.D. student at New York University School of Medicine, has been elected as chair to the AAMC’s Northeast Region of the Organization of Student Representatives (OSR). She also is in her third year of an 8-year medical scientist training program at NYU.

Regional chairs organize regional meetings, direct attention toward region specific issues, serve as conduit of information from the Administrative Board to individual OSR representative and coordinate information exchange within the region.

The OSR has a strong commitment to expressing the perspective of medical students. OSR represents medical students nationwide in advancing the AAMC (Association of American Medical College) mission to improve the nations health.

The OSR seeks to ensure that students actively participate in directing their education, preserving their rights and delineating their professional responsibilities.

Maurer, an Enid native, graduated from OSSM in Oklahoma City and is the daughter of Greg and Angie Maurer.
