SMP Office of Student Affairs

The SMP Student Affairs Team offers a supportive and confidential service for students throughout their medical school training. We maintain an open-door policy and an “arms-length” relationship with the academic team.

Student Affairs

We promote students’ professional growth and well-being by…   

  • supporting students through all stages of their medical education from 1st Year orientation to graduation
  • providing advice and advocacy for academic, personal, medical and financial issues
  • connecting to appropriate campus and community resources to deal with these issues
  • assisting with career planning in a timely, step-wise fashion during medical school
  • supporting student initiatives that promote well-being (student-driven interest groups; health & wellness research, activities, and events)
  • supporting student initiatives that involve the community, including charitable events

When should students contact Student Affairs?

  • whenever a question, concern or need arises that may impact on a student’s studies or well-being
  • contact us early, before issues intensify (problems that seem small may become troubling or disruptive if not dealt with promptly)

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.
