    Everyone experiences a variety of pressures in the medical school setting. The problems and anxieties you face are normal and solvable. Students can sometimes handle problems on their own or by talking with friends, but many times, students need additional help. Seeking this help is strongly encouraged.

    We offer a variety of support services designed to help students maximize their potential while at MSM. 

    Services offered:
    • Time Management                      
    • Test Taking Skills                 
    • Anxiety and Depression Management
    • Conflict Management
    • Stress Management
    • Study Skills
    • Family Issues

    All students are encouraged to talk over any issues of concern with a counseling services staff member.

    Sessions are confidential. Services are available free of charge to all matriculating students.
