New section

Initially created as the ad hoc GSA Committee on Medical Licensure in 1996, the renamed Committee on Student Records (COSR) was elevated to a regular standing committee of the GSA in 1998.

Committee Charge

GSA-COSR seeks to:

  • Discuss matters of national interest brought forward from GSA constituents or AAMC staff;
  • Assist COSR constituents with the interpretation and application of laws, regulations and school standards in regards to the maintenance of academic record;
  • Increase the awareness of best practices for record retention and disposal in the medical school setting;
  • Provide programming and publications that assist records professionals in their duties, including maintaining the integrity of academic records;
  • Promote professional development opportunities for medical school student records administrators; and
  • Collaborate with GSA leadership on matters that involve and/or impact the work of student records administrators.

Message from the Chair

I am honored to serve the national medical school records and registrar community and the AAMC as the Chair of the Committee on Student Records (COSR). COSR is one of the five national committees of the Group on Student Affairs (GSA) who are advisory to the GSA Steering Committee and AAMC. Our committee is comprised of the COSR Chair, four regional representatives, a Committee on Student Diversity Affairs (COSDA) representative, an Organization of Student Representatives (OSR) Liaison, a Committee on Student Financial Assistance (COSFA) Liaison, and the GSA Committee Past Chair.

The goal of COSR is to discuss matters of national interest brought forward from GSA constituents, and to collaborate with GSA leadership on matters that involve and/or impact the work of student records administrators. Recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the medical education landscape as we know it for the foreseeable future, particularly in the areas of medical student away rotations, registration, transcript production, and all areas surrounding the transition to residency. Now more than ever, it is important for the various groups within the GSA to work together to develop solutions to the unique challenges we and the students we serve face right now. It is in this spirit of collaboration that COSR will continue to provide guidance and develop best practices in these unpredictable times.

We are excited to build on the work of our previous COSR chairs and representatives. We welcome the input of our community, and encourage you to become involved by participating in our quarterly community calls, attending regional and national professional development meetings, and most importantly, by reaching out to us with the issues and concerns that affect records professionals. It is through your input that the committee can best achieve its goals and initiatives. I encourage you to contact me or your regional representative with suggestions, questions, and feedback.
