Larry Wickless, DO, President-elect of the American Osteopathic Association, took time to meet with first-year and second-year LECOM medical students recently. During his visit to the school, Dr. Wickless spent time talking with representatives of the medical classes and meeting with school administrators and faculty.
Dr. Wickless discussed the role of the AOA in regard to students and their future professional careers. “We have staff available to help as you make your transition from medical school to residency and finally to full-time practice,” he said.
Dr. Wickless toured the LECOM campus and took time to answer questions from medical students about a variety of topics. He also had the opportunity to tour the John M. and Silvia Ferretti Medical Fitness and Wellness Center, which opened on March 1.
