Office of Student Affairs

Student Affairs is dedicated to supporting students in the Faculty of Medicine to achieve their full academic and personal potentials. We want to ensure that all students are supported throughout their medical education with the resources that they need to succeed. We offer students a range of personal, wellness, financial, academic and career counseling services and support. The Office of Student Affairs is currently undergoing changes so while we continue to provide all these services there may be delays in dealing with your enquiries over the coming weeks. Student Wellness services remain unchanged. As always, you're welcome to connect with Michelle if you require assistance. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience such delays may cause.

The Mentorship Program is now active. Information is available here.

The Office of Student Affairs is committed to building a sense of community and facilitating opportunities for learners to reach their full academic and personal potentials while exploring the intersection of individual growth and social responsibility. Our aim is to nurture a safe and inclusive culture and foster learners' development as outstanding physicians and leaders.

Medical training marks the beginning of an exciting journey that brings a host of new experiences, new people and unique challenges. Therefore, we partner with learners, faculty and staff to develop enriching environments and experiences that promote your success, well being and 
responsibility. We partner with you to anticipate your needs and advocate for learner-centered initiatives.
Our office offers a range of personal, financial, academic and career counselling services and support. Through our programs and services we work together to help facilitate opportunities to maintain a healthy and respectful environment for learning. We do that by promoting an open exchange of ideas where each voice is heard and multiple perspectives are considered. This is at the heart of diversity and inclusion, 
empathy, compassion and professionalism.
We wholeheartedly welcome you to the Office of Student Affairs. We invite you to drop in to see us and share with us your questions, concerns and your achievements.
