Student Advising & Wellness Office

A safe and confidential resource dedicated to supporting students through their medical school journey.

Our goal is to ensure students achieve their full potential while staying balanced in medical school. We know that personal and academic situations may arise that create barriers, which is why we provide counselling on academics, career, and personal matters.

We advocate for students to ensure they have a voice in issues that affect their academic and personal lives.
