Woodruff Receives Alumni Certificate of HonorJanuary 22, 2019
Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) has announced that Tina Woodruff, EdD, senior advisor to the provost, is the recipient of the PCOM Alumni Association’s Certificate of Honor— the highest
award given by the Association in recognition of distinguished services rendered and
loyal devotion to the welfare and strengthening of PCOM. Dr. Woodruff will be honored
at PCOM’s Founders’ Day luncheon on Friday, January 25.
Dr. Woodruff has served the College for more than 15 years, the majority of those
as chief student affairs officer. In that role, she was charged with designing and implementing academic support
programs, career planning services, professional development opportunities and mental health support resources for students
in all academic programs on both the Philadelphia and Georgia campuses.
As a result of Dr. Woodruff’s leadership, PCOM students have access to academic, personal
and career support services designed to help them reach their professional goals.
Under her direction, PCOM’s Office of Student Affairs has grown to include 13 staff
members between the Philadelphia and Georgia campuses, and a model is also in place
to provide student affairs support services to students at PCOM South Georgia.
The offices on each campus organize orientation programs for new students; provide
academic support services, learning and disability accommodations, counseling services and career services for DO, pharmacy and graduate students; and oversee commencement related, co-curricular and community service activities.
In 2018, Dr. Woodruff transitioned to her current role as senior advisor to the provost
for DO residency planning services. In this role, Dr. Woodruff is responsible for
creating and overseeing a suite of residency planning, residency application and match
support services for the College’s DO students on all campuses.
Dr. Woodruff earned her doctoral degree in higher education administration and organizational
leadership from Widener University, her master’s degree in higher education counseling
and psychology from Rider University, and her bachelor’s degree in English and communication
from Temple University.
