Each student in the preclinical sciences is assigned to an Academic Coach within the Department of Pre-clinical Sciences who is available to provide academic advice to students. These faculty provide advice regarding academic options (e.g., withdrawing from a course,  and improving academic performance and program expectations). Each student is expected to meet several times during the term with their academic coach in order to develop, monitor, reflect upon and revise their individually designed goals and strategies and to construct and revise a personalized learning plan in order to meet their learning goals.
