Office of Student Affairs


New Brunswick Placements

The Office of Student Affairs is dedicated to supporting students in the Faculty of Medicine to achieve their full academic and personal potentials.

We offer students a range of personal, financial, academic and career counselling services and support. We aim to ensure that all students are supported throughout their training with the resources that they need to succeed.

PERSONAL: From time to time you may be facing challenges that can impact on your academic and personal well-being. If you are experiencing difficulties of a personal nature and would like to speak with someone you can contact the Director of Student Affairs assigned to your site. You are also able to contact the Student Wellness Consultant at any time. All counselling is kept confidential. 

HEALTH: While in New Brunswick you may require the services of a family doctor or another medical practitioner. If you are unwell or have any medical concerns please contact the Director of Student Affairs for your site and they will be able to make a referral and set up an appointment on your behalf.  

FINANCIAL: If you have questions or concerns regarding financial matters you may contact the Director of Student Affairs responsible for the city in which you are located. If you are looking for specific information about debt management, personal lines of credit, how to develop a financial plan, you may contact the Financial Counsellor, Mr. Philip Kearley, directly. Mr. Kearley will also assist you with student loans, bursaries, scholarships, and/or awards.

CAREER: Do you have questions about electives and selective? Are you preparing for CaRMS interviews and Matching and require some guidance? Are you looking for general advice about specialties?  You can contact the Director of Student Affairs in the city you are completing your clerkship or you can feel free to access the MUN MedCAREERS programme directly. MedCAREERS is a career advising and planning programme based, with permission, on the original American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) Careers in Medicine (CiM).

ACADEMIC: If you are experiencing academic difficulty while on your clerkship you should contact the Discipline Specific Director at your site.
