Leadership Programs for Students, Residents and Young Physicians

POMA is committed to helping our osteopathic students, resident and young physicians as they transition to practice, develop life-long career skills, and grow their professional network.  We currently host three leadership forums every year - January (Western PA), May (Eastern PA), August (Central PA).
