Enriching the Student Experience
The Office of Medical Student Affairs strives to help you expand your experience beyond the medical curriculum.
These pages are designed to point you toward resources that will enrich your medical school experience, both academically and socially. You'll find information about academic support services, research and funding opportunities, official policies, student organizations and "extracurricular" activities in Providence and beyond.
The Psychological Services staff has many years of experience in dealing with a broad range of problems. They provide crisis intervention, short-term psychotherapy, and referral services. They offer consultation to students, faculty and staff who are concerned about the well-being of students. Our appointments are free of charge, our contacts with students are confidential, and we are available when classes are in session.

Legal Services for Students
This service is ideal for students seeking legal consultation for personal issues free of charge. For minor issues, this legal consultation service may suffice. In other cases, a referral for more extensive legal consultation is possible and may be indicated. This service is being provided to medical students in conjunction with the undergraduate and graduate council of students. The services are provided by Leonard O'Brien.
Mr. O'Brien is available at the Sarah Doyle Women's Center on Tuesdays from 4:30-6:30pm. He is available for phone consultations on Thursdays from 3:00-5:00pm.
