The program was developed in order to create an organized and structured system of advising whereby students benefit from the ongoing support and wisdom of experienced faculty, educators, and role models of professionalism at our institution. One goal of this program is to foster a relationship between each student and a faculty member where students receive guidance and counseling throughout medical school in order to be successful in their endeavor to create their own physician identity. Another important goal is building community within the medical school.
Interested individuals must have the support of their department chair. The Advisory College funds twenty percent of each advisors salary in return for a commitment of twenty percent time to the program. Each Advisor is assigned a total of approximately 72 students from all four years of the curriculum.
