Each college includes a college advising team and career counselors to help you plan your academic choices to match your professional goals. The offices of Student Affairs, Academic Affairs and Clinical Education work together to ensure accuracy in these programs.

Your College Advising Team

As a part of the Colleges Program, all students are assigned to a College Advising Team. The advising team will serve all students assigned to their respective college (M1-M4).

Each College Advising Team consists of:

An Associate Dean, providing leadership oversight to support students with personal, social and/or academic concerns.

Two Career Counselors, who are clinical faculty providing career counseling and assistance with M3/M4 scheduling and specialty choice. Career Counselors are required to meet at least once per semester with all (M1 thru M4) students assigned to their college.

A Success Coach providing support for students with personal and/or academic concerns. Success Coaches are required to meet at least once per semester with all M1 and M2 students assigned to their college and with M3/M4 students upon request. Supervised by the Director, Student Success Initiatives, all coaches have experience working with students in a counseling and/or mentoring role. Coaches are annually engaged in professional development workshops on USMLE exam preparation, study strategies, recognition of anxiety, depression, stress, stress management, work-life balance, time management and the assessment of academic performance.

A Librarian, providing support to access resources, question banks, and research materials to support the overall academic success of students in each college.
