Appreciative Advising

Appreciative Advising is the intentional collaborative practice of asking positive, open-ended questions that help students optimize their educational experiences and achieve their dreams, goals, and potentials. It is perhaps the best example of a fully student-centered approach to student development.

Career Advising (CAN-DO)

Academic Advising

Academic Wellness is one aspect comprising your total well-being that you need to fully consider as you navigate through your academic journey. Often times students just starting out in medical school utilize study strategies from their undergraduate and/or high school years.
