Student Affairs Staff

Welcome to The Office of Student Affairs.

We support individual students and student groups throughout their medical school years. The main student-related activities are organized through this office including orientations, the White Coat ceremony, preparation for residency application, including the creation of the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) letter (also known as the Dean's letter), ERAS support, Match Day coordination, and Graduation events.  

In conjunction with the Learning Communities (Houses), Student Inclusion & Diversity, and Student Wellness, the Office of Student Affairs provides academic, career, and personal counseling and advice.  The office can also arrange for special tutorial assistance or referral for formal learning evaluations. 

Other responsibilities of the office include:

  • Oversight of student health, wellness, and the learning environment through the Office of Student Wellness and the Learning Environment Enrichment Group (LEEG)
  • Access to individual and group mentoring and coaching
  • Access to individual, couple and group counseling
