The Office of Student Affairs builds an environment that supports all medical students through sensitivity, advocacy, leadership, team-work and education. We do this by:

Fostering students' academic and intellectual development and creates a climate that reinforces learning in all aspects of student life
Creating services, programs and opportunities to assist students with their personal and professional development
Developing a student culture which fosters the establishment and strengthening of relationships, as well as enhances effective communication throughout each Learning Community, class and the entire medical student body
Providing a wide range of educational opportunities, a greater appreciation and understanding of diversity and inclusion while preparing medical students to assume leadership roles in the community
Providing advice regarding career options and helps prepare and guide students in reaching their career goals, whether practitioner or physician scientist
Responding to the issues, ideas and needs of all constituencies, internal and external, by providing support and services to faculty, staff, alumni and the community
