Organizational Unit Overview:
The Brody School of Medicine (BSOM) Office of Student Development and Counseling (OSDAC) encourages excellence and innovation in learning and supports a learning environment that promotes equity, student success and the comprehensive development of learners. OSDAC is expanding from a mostly academic counseling model to include wellness and a broader, more comprehensive approach to student development through counseling. This change is needed as the needs for the academic environment continue to expand with a greater focus on learner wellness and health, a move to a more integrated curriculum and a greater need to prepare a broader span of learners to be engineers of the healthcare experience for patients and communities. The enlarging focus of OSDAC includes development of a wellness curriculum for medical school learners as well as provision of services for learners in the BSOM pipeline programs (Pre-college to post-baccalaureate). The newly created Assistant Dean for Student Development and Academic Counseling will play a central role in organizing the office to meet these needs
