Academic Counseling

The Academic Enrichment Center (AEC) provides academic counseling/coaching  to all health science programs. Students may seek academic counseling for various reasons. The goal of the AEC is to support all students as they adapt to the rigors of their curriculum. The AEC assists students with study skills, time management skills, USMLE test prep, life skills, and much more. Any current student may drop in or make an appointment with the academic counselor. No referrals are needed.

Academic Counseling

Our learning specialist is available to advise students individually or in small groups on issues related to academic strategies. The specialist may present special workshops throughout the year on topics such as academic planning and time management. The learning specialist will monitor and review academic records and serve as a liaison with student affairs.

Study Strategies

The learning specialist will assist students in preparing for subject and comprehensive exams. The amount of material and pace of curriculum can present many challenges for medical students. Understanding how you personally learn and then practicing effective study strategies are important aspects of gaining success in medical school.
