Just a few of the things we can help with

  • family planning
  • adjustment to medical school
  • mental health
  • psychological support
  • personal circumstances or situations
  • illness (short and long term)
  • leaves of absence or time off
  • scheduling changes or adjustments

Take charge

We encourage you to come meet with us as soon as you notice a problem or challenge. If we can’t help, we’ll find someone who can. Best of all, our services are confidential.
