First-Year and Second-Year Advising

Student academic advising occurs within two broad programs: Academic Advising and Career Counseling.

First-year students are assigned to academic societies upon matriculation. Each academic society has an advisory dean. This advisory dean meets with all first- and second-year students individually in the first and second year. In addition, advisory deans will meet with their students in small groups several times throughout the year. Advisory deans meet and discuss with their students how to succeed in medical school, the opportunities and challenges they may face as a medical student, career paths and how to select among them.

For more information about medical student advising, please visit the Office of Medical Student Affairs Advising webpage. Information about career advising can be found under the Postgraduate section of the Doctor of Medicine page.
