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 confidential counseling and support services designed to promote the academic success, wellness, and development of medical students and resident physicians through academic support services. Services are offered to help students address unique academic, and personal concerns.
In support of ECU’s vision to create an environment that fosters the recruitment and retention of a more diverse campus community, the staff of the Office of Student Development & Academic Counseling has participated in Safe Zone training. We are part of a network of allies who are empathic and informed about LGBT issues and provide confidential support at East Carolina University.
