Academy of Advisors

Our mission is to connect medical students with distinguished faculty who can offer advising, mentorship and career development guidance.  Developed in the Spring of 2012, the Academy of Advisers is coordinated by the Office of Student Services to help address an LCME standard, MS-18.  The program is designed to provide mentoring and advocacy for medical students that integrates the efforts of educators, course directors, and student services across the three campuses.  The Academy’s central aim is to focus faculty expertise and resources to help students:

  • negotiate the demands of a challenging curriculum
  • maximize their academic success;
  • implement a measured approach to applying for residency programs; and
  • develop a career development plan.

If you are a faculty member and are interested in joining the Academy of Advisors, please contact Dr. Scott Cottrell at scottrell@hsc.wvu.edu.
