The OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine Success Committee monitors and formulates policies and procedures governing remediation services. The Committee will review student course and clerkship and intern, resident and fellow performance longitudinally, with input from the appropriate Course or Clerkship Director(s), to determine if a formal remediation process is necessary.
Membership shall consist of Biomedical Science and Clinical Science Remediation Specialists, the Director of Student Affairs, the Director of Medical Education, the Associate Dean for Biomedical Sciences, and the Senior Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.
Remediation Services is designed to assist OSU-COM students in meeting the academic and professional requirements for satisfactory progress in the standard curriculum. The referral of a medical student to Remediation Services will occur when designated triggers identify a student, by faculty or self referral, or by suggestion of the Academic Standards Committee. An individualized learning plan for remediation will be developed through a coordinated effort between the course or clerkship director, a remediation specialist, and the Student Success Committee, with subsequent report to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
Engagement of the medical student in the individualized remediation plan is considered mandatory. Failure of the medical student to complete or progress within the individualized learning plan will result in referral to the Academic Standards Committee for consideration. Remediation services is considered non-punitive and is designed to intervene early enough in the academic curriculum to provide timely support, track academic progress, and to ensure academic success.
