Academic Support Services & Advisement

The primary goal of the programs offered by the Office of Academic Support Services & Advisement is to help students achieve their full academic potential. Each year in medical school presents students with a host of new learning challenges. As a result, despite having done well in college, many medical students encounter test-taking difficulties or find they have inefficient study habits. In some cases this results in poor performance, a high level of anxiety and stress, and even failure. To help students avoid and overcome obstacles to their effective learning, Academic Support Services & Advisement works closely with both students and faculty by offering counseling, tutorials and testing, in both individual and group settings.
