2015-2016 Student Representative Committee

Welcome to the Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine Program at the Boston University School of Medicine. As Student Representative Committee members, we are an integral part of the program. The Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine Program relies heavily on student feedback and, as such, the student representatives act as a voice for the student body and a liaison between faculty and students.

Our student-mentoring program links current students with incoming students, in an effort to answer any questions incoming students may have and help ease the transition into graduate school.

We are a self-selected group of first- and second-year students who work together on a wide variety of projects, including social events, our program newsletter, a mentoring program, and program seminars. Social events we have planned include Halloween bowling, a holiday potluck, and cultural movie nights, giving a chance for first and second year students, as well as faculty, to get to know one another better outside of the classroom setting. The quarterly newsletter is a compilation of updates from students, past and present, as well as faculty members, helping to keep everyone informed of one another’s professional and personal news.

The Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine Program has recently developed a seminar series, made up of discussions and presentations with topics ranging from developing a private practice, to personal and professional balance, to play therapy. We as the student reps contribute to this seminar series by identifying topics and needs we and our fellow students find interesting.

Currently in its second year, our student mentoring program links current students with incoming students, in an effort to answer any questions incoming students may have and help ease the transition into graduate school
