Students and faculty work very closely together in the academic arena. This interaction permits students to get to know their faculty and vice‐versa. Students are encouraged to use the advice, expertise, and help of the faculty.
Students are assigned an academic advisor at the beginning of the program. The faculty advisor is an advocate who takes a personal interest in assigned students.
Students should feel free to contact their faculty advisor as frequently as necessary for advice, encouragement, or support. Faculty advisors do assume a pro‐active role and become involved with their students when performance levels fail to meet minimum academic standards.
Clinical departments assume responsibility for advising the students in the clinical years.
