KSUCPM Student Named APMSA President-Elect

Sarah Gostich, known by Sal to many, is a 3rd year student at KSUCPM. Sal is the class of 2019’s APMSA delegate. She was elected president-elect of the APMSA in January of 2017 and will begin serving her president year in January of 2018. As president, Sal will serve as a voting member on the Board of Trustees of the APMSA. She works hand-and-hand with the APMSA executive director to continually improve the organization so that it can always meet the needs of podiatric medical students across the country. She also will address the APMA House of Delegates in March 2018 on behalf of the podiatric medical students.


Prior to attending KSUCPM, Sal was a full-time firefighter/paramedic working for Seminole County Fire Department in Florida. Sal always had aspirations of becoming a physician. She originally thought about becoming an emergency medical physician because of her experience in EMS. However, it wasn’t until she shadowed her uncle, who is a podiatric physician that she began to think very seriously about podiatric medicine. The ability to select a surgical specialty prior to entering medical school was the deciding factor in her choice to go to podiatric medical school. Her uncle, Cyril Gostich is an OCPM alumni from the class of 1980. KSUCPM was the top choice podiatric medical school for Sal.


Sal is a very busy student. Along with the demands of podiatric medical school, she is the APMSA president-elect and she continues to work part-time as a firefighter/paramedic for Kirtland Fire Department. When she does have some down time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, is an avid cleveland sports fan, and enjoys babysitting her niece
