Athletes in Medicine (AIM) offers education, networking, and guidance to support student-athletes on their journey to medical school. AIM is comprised of former NCAA student-athletes at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, who are committed to assisting you on your path to becoming a Doctor.


Featured on the Buckeye Futures Podcast

During this session, we were joined by eight former collegiate student-athletes and Director of Admissions Julie Brim to discuss the gap year process, how to stand out as an applicant, and more!
