Message from the Associate Dean for Student Affairs
A medical school education encompasses so much more than the time one spends in the classroom. Student Affairs is responsible for focusing on everything outside of the classroom and we look forward to sharing this rewarding experience with you.
We will support you as you transition from an undergraduate to a medical student and assist you in balancing both your education and personal life. The need to focus on your studies as well as choose what specialty to focus on and career path to choose while maximizing your extracurricular time, joining clubs at school, participating in research and still finding time for your friends and family.
No matter the challenge you face, the Student Affairs team is here to help. We will ensure you have all the resources necessary for you to be successful at your fingertips. Whether it’s a piece of chocolate to help get you through the afternoon, a tutor to help you understand the classroom didactics, a liaison to partner with on a research project or just a friendly ear to chat with, we are here for you. We define ourselves as successful when you are successful on your medical school journey…and beyond.
We look forward to getting to know you, watching you transition from student to medical student to doctor and physician.
