ASP offers numerous types of tutoring opportunities with many pathways to take advantage of them. Please visit this page for more information about our tutoring program and how to participate in it.
Workshops and Presentations
The Academic Success Program provides regular workshops and presentations on topics related to:
- board exams, and
- improvement of overall academic performance.
Details about these workshops and presentations can be found on our program’s calendar page.
Board Exams Prep
ASP also provides help with the Step 1 and Step 2 board examinations. This help includes one-on-one tutoring, monitoring and administration of practice exams, and the creation of study calendars (including advice on when to set a test date). These resources aim to maximize student performance. We also maintain a resource library of study materials for students in clerkship rotations and preparing for board examinations.
The Academic Success Program administers a coaching program aimed at helping first-year students transition into the intense academic environment of medical school. Our coaches provide a stable network of support and advice that help students successfully navigate their new surroundings.
For students who cannot or opt not to meet in person, the Academic Success Program offers regular online availability. This includes the option to hold any counseling opportunity through Zoom, as well as weekly drop-in counseling through the university’s ConexED service. For these drop-in sessions only, more information can be found on our calendar.
