Corrie Stofcho, M.D., elected to AAMC steering committee

Corrie Stofcho, M.D. (’06), was elected as member-at-large on the Central Group on Student Affairs (CGSA) Steering Committee for the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).

During her two-year term she will provide perspective and insight to discussions and actions of the CGSA Steering Committee, representing both the Central region and NEOMED. At national and regional levels, GSAs address issues in medical school admissions, student affairs, student diversity affairs, student financial assistance and student records at all member medical schools. The Central region comprises Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Manitoba and Ontario.

Dr. Stofcho has vast experience in advising students through their medical school journeys. She is assistant dean of students in the NEOMED College of Medicine, frequently advises first-through-fourth-year medicine students, and has been a Professional Development Advising Team clinical advisor, an M4 schedule advisor and an M4 Match advisor.

She also is a clinical associate professor of pediatrics at NEOMED and pediatric hospitalist for Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital. She has also been a clinical instructor of pediatrics for the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences and assistant clinical professor of pediatrics at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.

Wonderful mentors

“I have had the benefit of working with many wonderful mentors and advisees throughout my career and I welcome this opportunity to strengthen my skills and work as a mentor, advisor and advocate for the greater CGSA community,” Dr. Stofcho said. “Our students are facing more competition and more challenges in a more complex application system for residency than ever before. Through my work on this steering committee, I hope to not only advocate for the student population at NEOMED to support their success, but to advocate for the medical student community at large.”

If her time at NEOMED is any indication, she will likely have a positive impact from the start. Within her first two years as assistant dean of students, she was nominated by the graduating class for two honors — Commencement Hooder and Outstanding Service Award – both of which recognize an exemplary commitment to education and service to the student body.
