The educational transition to medical school can be challenging and demanding. To assist students with these demands, the Academic Success Program provides free individual and group tutoring.

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 

The Academic Success Program provides regular workshops on topics related to:

  • improvement of overall academic performance.

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 creation of study calendars. 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.

Virtual Counseling 

For students who are out of town, on away rotations, or can’t make it to campus, the Academic Success Program offers regular online availability through the university’s ConexED service. Dates for these sessions and links to the service can be found on our calendar.
