Our Mission

The Surgery and Sports Medicine Club at OU-HCOM is committed to giving first and second year medical students insight into the various surgical and sports medicine specialties. Our mission is to educate our members by bringing in specialists from across the state to speak about their experiences in medicine. We also aim to give our members hands on experiences with an ultrasound clinic, suture clinics, and working with team physicians of OU athletic program. Like many organizations, we are also committed to giving back to the Athens, Dublin and Cleveland communities with various volunteer activities.
