Sigma Sigma Phi
Student Organizations Cleveland
Sigma Sigma Phi is an honorary osteopathic service fraternity.
Our objectives and purposes are:
- To further the science of osteopathic medicine and its standards of practice
- To improve the scholastic standing and promote a higher degree of fellowship among its students
- To bring about a closer relationship and understanding between the student bodies and the officials and members of the faculties of our colleges
- To foster allegiance to the American Osteopathic Association and to perpetuate these principles and the teachings through the maintenance and development of this organization
Dues: $80 at initiation
The Lambda Chapter of Sigma Sigma Phi at the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine began on the Athens campus and has two satellite campuses in Dublin and Cleveland.
ATHENS - DUBLIN - CLEVELAND
Sigma Sigma Phi provides a variety of services to the community. For example, Sigma Sigma Phi has annual partnerships with Good Works and Athens Children's Services. Most of the events are to raise money or services for charities in the Athens community. Sigma Sigma Phi members are strongly encouraged to hone their leadership skills in the Heritage College community, holding events that specifically target fellow medical students, and in this way, further build strong, productive relationships among peers and within the Heritage College family.
Each member of SSP commits to a minimum of 12 hours of service each semester for pre-clinical students (OMS-I and OMS-II) and four hours of service each semester for clinical students (OMS-III and OMS-IV), depending on class year. Additionally, the executive board plans to hold at least one service event each semester to help Heritage College students get involved in the community.
Tentative Schedule for 2020-2021
Project Linus in late fall; we want to do some collaborations with SNMA and SAAO in terms of serving underserved populations and community service.
