Student Affairs

Welcome to Alpert Medical School and to the Office of Student Affairs! We look forward to sharing in your medical school journey with you. Our goal, working closely with the Offices of Medical Education and Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, is to provide you with a supportive learning environment, offering the advising and support that you need to grow as a future physician.

Your well-being and overall wellness are of utmost importance to us, and we are committed to supporting you throughout your training. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us with any questions about student life at Alpert Medical School.

Vision: Engaged, empowered, and supported students develop into successful, professional, and compassionate physicians.

Mission: The mission of the AMS Office of Student Affairs is to support our medical students in their development as a community of individuals who are thriving personally and professionally.  To advance this goal, we aim to support an open, caring, and inclusive learning environment at AMS and its affiliates, to serve as an accessible and responsive resource for our students, and to promote the personal, academic, and career development of our students.
