The Office of Student Affairs supports students during medical school and into their careers. The Deans of Student Affairs provide personal, academic, and professional guidance for their students throughout all four years. We facilitate tutorial assistance, disability accommodations, certifications and scheduling and registrar functions. We provide career advising services and support all aspects of the residency match process. Our office organizes and participates in all major events such as orientation, White Coat Ceremony, Transition to Clinical Care, Match Day, and graduation.
