Welcome to the National TOUCH Point Submission Application!

About the 2018 & 2019 TOUCH Cycles

The 2018 TOUCH cycle, which ran from April 1, 2017 - April 30, 2018, has closed. While students may still review their submissions, no further changes or updates are possible. We expect to have an update on reporting to schools the week of June 4.

At this time, AACOM is reviewing new software for the TOUCH program with the goal opening the 2019 cycle by mid-summer. The 2019 TOUCH cycle runs May 1, 2018 through April 30, 2019. COSGP representatives will notify COM students when the new cycle is open for submissions.

The Translating Osteopathic Understanding into Community Health (TOUCH) Program is a national initiative of the Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents (COSGP).

Its goal is to encourage osteopathic medical students to engage in service throughout their community, in order to impact those outside of osteopathic medical students and professionals, for the purpose of expanding the osteopathic ideals and principles to those unaware of our professional values.

In life, we leave a legacy to our children, we leave our footprints wherever we travel, and we leave our fingerprints on every heart we touch.
