Student Affairs Office
The role of the Student Affairs office is to provide a friendly interface between the academic and clinical components of the medical course and the students’ need for information about personal or social support.
The office monitors the progress of students in the pre-clinical and clinical years, and provides mentorship and pastoral advice on all matters of a personal and academic nature including illness, leave of absence, class lists and the coordination of orientation days, courses, timetables, handbooks and electives.
