Tony Sciuva (DO ’24) 
National Chair, Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents


May 19, 2022

Tony Sciuva (DO ’24)As he prepares to complete his second year of medical school and begin his clinical education, Tony Sciuva (DO ’24) has taken on a new role: National Chair of the Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents (COSGP).

COSGP is the official national leadership council of the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) and is the only organization that represents all osteopathic medical students. COSGP is comprised of the student government/council presidents from each of the nation's osteopathic medical colleges and serves as the liaison between osteopathic professional organizations and all students.

As the National Chair of COSGP and PCOM South Georgia’s past DO Council President, Sciuva will represent all osteopathic medical students across the nation. He will oversee and support all COSGP initiatives as well as serve as the primary liaison to AACOM and have regular meetings with leaders in osteopathic medicine to help provide insight and guidance from the student perspective and collate the voice of all students’ opinions.

Sciuva said he’s excited to ensure that osteopathic medical students’ opinions are heard in healthcare and higher education.

“I will have the opportunity to reach out and voice the opinions of even the youngest COMs and echo the opinions of the many in order to convey the important messages that students need national stakeholders to hear,” he said. “With that avenue and opportunity, it is a very exhilarating and nerve-racking experience, but I am stoked about taking on the role. Not every action or thing that we say seems large, but when you do them in conjunction with every osteopathic medical student those many words and actions have an even more profound impact than we could have ever imagined.”

Sciuva related his service in this position to the principles and philosophies of osteopathic medicine, saying “As osteopathic medical students, we are instructed to always keep an open mind and not only understand the patient at surface level, but also survey the pertinent qualities of patients that may seem intangible to many. It is with our minds open that we can truly consider others. I hope to bring those same qualities and characteristics to this position. As students, we are responsible for what happens next, and I want to make sure that I lean forward in my position to help move the ball forward in the right direction.”
