TCOM students visit Capitol Hill

Seven Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM) students traveled to Washington, D.C., for DO Day on Capitol Hill April 29. Shane Alexander, Shwetha Chagalamarri, Lira Chowdhury, Achala Talati, Sarah Tran, Kevin Weiss and Cole Zanetti represented TCOM at the annual event.

More than 800 students from 25 osteopathic medical schools filled the nation’s Capitol to speak with senators and state representatives about medical issues, including improving the Medicare reimbursement system, increasing funding for graduate medical education residencies and adding incentives on the public service loan repayment program for physicians specializing in primary care.

"These issues ultimately impact patients and patient care for the future," Alexander, TCOM ’13, said. "We need to make sure we have enough physicians to care for the growing number of people seeking medical care."
