Office of Student Affairs

Financial Support

Philip Kearley is the first financial counsellor hired by the Faculty of Medicine’s Student Affairs Office to provide an important service for medical students.

Mr. Kearley
spent the last six years with a major bank as a personal financial advisor. Now
he’s using his talents and experience to help medical students with their finances, particularly in the area of debt management. “I want to meet with all students, starting with the first-year class, to start developing individual financial plans.”

Attending a financial management seminar is mandatory for all new medical students, and Mr. Kearley is encouraging face-to-face meetings with all students. “I can help each student understand their current financial situation, identify areas of concern and help forecast potential debt load after medical school and residency.”

Mr. Kearley’s role encompasses financial education awareness and debt management. From registered retirement savings to mortgages to insurance he is committed to providing students sound financial advice and support on any financial matters.

If you would like to discuss your individual financial needs, please contact Philip Kearley, Financial Counsellor. You can phone him at 864 6395, send an email or drop by his office M2M121.
