Medical school is a challenging experience. More is expected than in college years, and the curriculum requires a greater percentage of personal time. Recent college graduates may find that previous approaches to studying are less effective. For students who completed college a number of years ago and are pursuing medicine as a second career, the transition from “colleague” to “student” can be difficult. For students with families, the transition may also affect loved ones.
The Office of Academic Support and Counseling (OASC) strives to provide students with a variety of support services to help ease the transition to medical school and enable students to reach their potential. Recognizing the important role of student-to-student support services, the OASC team incorporates a peer advisory system as well as a professional component, empowering all medical students to acquire the guidance and help they need throughout their journey.
