About Us

The mission of the Office of Student Development and Academic Counseling (OSDAC) is to promote the academic success, wellness and development of medical students and resident physicians through a full range of academic support services.

Training in the medical and healthcare fields is extremely stressful and often students in this academic arena experience many unique hurdles that may challenge success. The time dedicated to achieving professional and academic goals may require learning new problem solving skills. To aid in the development of these skills, the Office of Student Development and Academic Counseling (OSDAC) seeks to provide students with support services through programs, workshops and one-on-one meetings. Services are offered to help students address unique academic and personal concerns.

In support of the Brody School of Medicine's mission of diversity, OSDAC is a resource for students, residents, faculty and staff to remove unnecessary barriers to learning and foster a more diverse community.
