The Medical Scientist Student Organization (MSSO) is a student-founded and student-run organization that acts as the primary liaison to the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) in The Ohio State University College of Medicine. All students in the MSTP at any stage of their training are members of the MSSO. The MSSO functions to fulfill many of the common needs of these students by promoting social, scholarly, and professional development through its various activities. The MSSO meets bi-weekly to discuss programmatic updates and listen to seminars from MSTP students on their research, clinical cases or other topics related to biomedical science or patient care.
The MSSO Officers are student leaders of the MSTP who serve the program as both advocates, for the needs and effective training of students, and ambassadors, between students, leadership and other groups at the College of Medicine, to ultimately influence the direction and continued success of our program. Anyone interested in partnering with the MSSO is invited to reach out to our current president.
Ohio State's MSTP Roundtable has been created to provide students with the opportunity to regularly interact with successful Ohio State physician scientists in an informal setting.
