Office of Student Affairs
The Office of Student Affairs for the Brody School of Medicine is the administrative unit responsible for a wide range of support services and development activities for medical students. Beginning with orientation for the first year of medical school and continuing through each year until a student graduates, the Office of Student Affairs oversees a wide range of activities and programs designed for medical students’ benefit and support. The office also provides financial aid assistance.
Orientation activities at the beginning of each academic year are organized for each class. The Office of Student Affairs, in conjunction with the Medical Education and Student Development office, provides career guidance and specialty choice sessions during each year of medical school. The Office of Student Affairs provides the Medical Student Performance Evaluation for residency application, assists with the Match process and coordinates Match Day for the fourth-year students, as they select and find out where they will be doing their postgraduate (residency) training. The culmination of a student’s educational efforts includes Convocation—the School of Medicine’s hooding ceremony—and Commencement, during which the Doctor of Medicine degree is conferred.
