The academic demands of the medical school are rigorous, and with so many claims on your time, it’s not unusual to occasionally feel the need for a little extra help.
All departments at the medical school provide an easily accessible tutorial program for students who want tutoring or re-testing. You should contact the department to find out who has been assigned to this role.
The following services are also available:
- Practice examinations and computer programs for review and self-teaching
- A designated computer room and learning center in the basement of the medical library.
Students Helping Students (SHS)
This student-directed tutorial and review program is offered for each of the basic science courses. It can be accessed through the Office of Student Affairs. SHS teams second-year students with first-year students to help them master the science curriculum and manage their time. The second-year students run problem-solving sessions drawing on their own experiences to focus first-year students’ studies and to translate difficult concepts. Sessions are held throughout the year.
In addition, a more private tutorial system is also available to students. This program can be accessed by contacting the associate dean for student affairs.
