Accelerated Ambassador Program Track
The Ambassador program includes an accelerated track tailored for student-doctors that do not enter the program as OMS-I. Student-Doctors can choose to participate, or to not participate, in the accelerated track. Successful completion of the Accelerated Ambassador Program allows the student-doctor to gain all the achievements of both Stage 1 and Stage 2 in a single academic year. This option will only be available for the OMS-II students who did not participate as OMS-I. Acceleration of the program beyond Stage 1 and 2 is not allowed.
Student-doctors in the Accelerated Ambassador Program track have the following responsibilities:
- Supporting prospective student interview tours on Mondays, Tuesdays, and/or Fridays at noon-12:30 p.m. Ambassadors must be able to provide a minimum of six tours this academic year. The tours can be divided per semester if the student so chooses.
- Attend prospective student interview luncheons on Mondays, Tuesdays, and/or Fridays at 12:30 p.m. Ambassadors must be able to attend a minimum of six luncheons this academic year. Luncheons can be divided per semester if the student so chooses.
- Attend weekly lectures. Attendance will be randomly checked. Excused absences will be considered on an individual basis. If it appears that an ambassador has an issue with regular class attendance, then the Office of Student Services has the right to dismiss the ambassador from the program.
- Participate in recruitment events in the community. Ambassadors must be able to attend a minimum of two community recruitment or public relations events per academic year. The recruitment events can be divided per semester if the student so chooses. Recruitment and public relationship events in the community are defined as any structured events where the student-doctor is representing Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine in such a way that is designed to create interest and support of the college.
- Participate in orientation and graduation activities as assigned by the Office of Student Services.
- Participate in additional interview tours as needed.
- Participate in beta test of software or programs established by LUCOM when applicable or other areas as assigned by the Office of Student Services.
Participation in the Accelerated Ambassador Program track will be documented in the student-doctor’s file as completing Stages 1 and 2 of the program. In addition, the student-doctor’s participation will be documented in the Dean’s Letter. The student-doctor will receive certificates of achievement for the completion of Stage 1 and Stage 2, and the student-doctor will receive lapel pins for both stages.
