Advisory College Program

The Advisory College Program is a mentorship model designed to promote robust interaction between faculty and students at The Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine. We have four (4) faculty led colleges which serve as a learning community where faculty advisors facilitate curricular and co-curricular activities.  The goal of the program is to assist in the development of medical students as they complete the degree program and later as future physicians.  Partnerships with College Advisors are longitudinal, lasting until graduation.

Each College collaborates with students on activities that promote professionalism, wellness and career development through a series of social activities, required one-one-one meetings, and structured group events such as community service projects.  Students are encouraged to request meetings and guidance from their College advisors at any time.
