The Student DO of the Year award (SDOY) is an annual award presented by the Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents (COSGP) to students who go above and beyond the average osteopathic medical student.  Each School or College of Osteopathic Medicine (SOM/COM) will select a school SDOY, and these school winners will go on to compete for the National SDOY Award. The National SDOY will be announced at the AACOM Annual Meeting in April and will be the recipient of a monetary award (amount which will be formally determined at a later date).

The SDOY Award Recipient must be a full-time student at a SOM/COM and cannot be a previous school or national Student DO of the Year (SDOY) recipient. This individual should represent the following ideals and values:

  • Leadership
  • Commitment to Community Service
  • Dedication to the Profession
  • Professionalism
  • Embodiment of the Osteopathic Philosophy
