About Us

Welcome to the Office of Student Life.  We enjoy getting to know all of our medical students and take great pride in fostering a caring and open environment where all feel comfortable and at home.  From your first day of medical school, our “family” is dedicated to helping you successfully complete your journey to becoming an outstanding physician.

We offer responsive and accessible resources for your personal health and wellness, professional growth and development, academic achievement and excellence, and career development and preparation.  Expert student financial services are also available so that you can focus on being a student.  And, we’ll keep you informed--from scholarship and fellowship opportunities to breaking news on medical education policies from both the College and the Association of American Medical Colleges--through our weekly e-mail MD2B Update.

Each year, the Office of Student Life participates in orientation for new students and the combined White Coat and Faculty Teaching Awards ceremony and plans the residency Match Day celebration, graduation convocation, and Student Clinician's Ceremony.  We also serve as a liaison to Student Council and numerous student interest groups as well as the Gold Humanism Honor Society.

We work hard to be your advocate from the moment you receive your acceptance to medical school through your preparations for residency.  Please visit us in person, by telephone, or via e-mail for answers to your questions or for other assistance.

The Office of Student Life strives to provide the best possible service to enhance your education and quality of life at the College of Medicine: 

Academic Advising/Career Planning

Our Student Counseling Services group is committed to helping you realize your potential and to supporting you in the development of your medical career complementary to your individual life goals.  When it comes to being the best student that you can be, our advisors will work one-on-one with you to empower you to succeed academically.

Personal Counseling

Students succeed in their academic and personal goals when they feel safe, healthy, and supported--both inside and outside of the classroom.  We provide individual counseling to assist you in your transition to life at the College of Medicine as well as intervention services and programs for your overall well-being.

Student Financial Services

This office assists all students in securing the best funding for medical school for which they are eligible. We are here to provide you with comprehensive financial planning guidance--before, during, and after medical school.
