Who Should I Contact?

Students often wonder where to go to deal with a particular issue they’re having. USPOM is divided up mainly into the Office of Student Affairs (OSA) and the Office of Medical Education (OMED), which work together very closely to meet student needs. Here, we outline which office does what, so if you have an issue, you know where to go. If you’re not sure, just ask!
