Medical Student Services

The Medical Student Services team serves as a resource for students with all kinds of questions. Medical school is often the most demanding and most rewarding experience our students have known, and we want to challenge them to grow and change throughout their time with us. Our goal is to nurture students to become self-motivated and resourceful lifelong learners who take responsibility for their education and their part in the health care system.

We support the academic mission, but our primary focus is on student wellness, personal growth and professional development. We weave a support system through mentored learning communities, small group faculty mentoring, individual career advising, academic tutoring, and service learning opportunities. We also collaborate with students to support each other through numerous student organizations.
