Our students — leaders dedicated to improving health — are the heart of Dell Medical School. Student Affairs supports their well-being in every way it can, from financial aid to academic assistance to social activities and beyond. Even before medical students commit to Dell Med, Student Affairs partners with the admissions team to ensure a positive experience during the application and interview process.
For residents and fellows, the school’s Graduate Medical Education team partners with Ascension Seton to offer these resources.
We believe in our students. We trust them to contribute by identifying their own areas of greatest need and developing solutions. Not only does our team work with students to address challenges and areas of growth, we partner with them to improve resources that benefit all Dell Med students.
The Office of Student Affairs teaches. Not anatomy or biochemistry or foundations of disease — rather, we help our students build skills essential to their careers: self-understanding, influence, financial planning, graduate medical education application strategy and more. Dell Med’s focus on team-based learning is applied to this education as well, so students grow together in a social context. Our team offers one-on-one advising as needed depending on the circumstance.
Dell Med students come from a range of backgrounds and lifestyles. Our team recognizes that each person experiences medical school in a different way — and we keep this in mind when coaching and encouraging students. People make mistakes. Life throws us surprises. Our team strives for understanding while helping students achieve success in medical school and beyond.
