Personal Counseling

Medical school is a life-changing, challenging experience. Through the provision of holistically-informed and evidence-based practices, the Office of Wellness and Counseling is committed to helping students develop into well-rounded, compassionate, and first-rate osteopathic practitioners for the twenty-first century.

The core team is represented by qualified clinical health professionals who are experienced in helping students with adjustment issues, psychological difficulties, academic obstacles, and the variety of challenges medical students face.

If you are experiencing difficulties during your time with us, we encourage you to seek help. 

You will be treated with sensitivity and dignity, and our services are always confidential. Informed, written consent by the student is always required in instances where students request communication with other parties on their behalf.

No problem is too daunting, and the team is committed to working side-by-side with students, and turning seeming adversity into growth-enhanced learning.

We are here for you.
