Medical school is one of the most difficult educational endeavors that a student will ever encounter, and very often students have to learn new academic skills and techniques in order to both survive and thrive academically. It is difficult, but far from impossible. Every year students move forward toward fulfilling lifelong goals of becoming practicing physicians, and many of these students had a helping hand along the way. Just as you expect your patients to one day come to you with difficulties that you can help them with, we at the Office of Academic Support ask that you come to us when you are experiencing academic difficulties.
Below is a description of just some of the various ways that we can be of assistance to you:
One-on-one consultation and instruction available
Skill-specific presentations offered throughout the year and upon request
If you’re a student at MUSOM, please join our MUSOM Academic Support group on Facebook.
If we don’t have an answer or solution, we will find one or refer you to someone who does!
