About COSR

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. 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.
