MAMS Faculty Advising

Faculty Advisors

Each student in the M.A. in Medical Sciences Program, including those students in the Oral Health Sciences Track, is assigned a faculty advisor. Your advisor will assist you with course selection and registration, career guidance, medical school applications, mock interviews, thesis project selection and other areas of interest and concern. Your advisor, along with the entire faculty, is dedicated to helping you succeed and will become a valuable mentor and advocate.

You should plan to meet with your advisor on a regular basis but it is very important to set up meetings at the following times:

• Introductory meeting in the early part of the semester (before first set of exams in September – early October)

• After you have completed your first set of exams (October)

• During class registration for the Spring semester (November)

• After first set of exams in Spring semester

• January to April 1 to discuss your Biosketch for Dean’s/Advisor’s Letter

• April – course registration for Fall and/or Summer sessions; thesis plans; and medical school applications

Students will receive advisor assignments during the Program Orientation.
