Connect with Course Directors

Each course you take has a faculty member designated to its design, implementation, and evaluation. Which makes them your best resource for course-specific questions, troubleshooting, and feedback.

So when you need support on the content of your class, ask the course director.

Medical School Societies

You’ll be randomly assigned to a Student Society when you are admitted to the D.O. program. These small communities are part of a core component of the Wellness program and include a faculty leader, two academic advisors, several faculty members, and peer mentors.

Along with about 25 of your peers, you’ll stay in this society throughout your time in medical school and benefit from the close-knit support, mentorships, and fun.
