Academic Enhancement Office

The Academic Enhancement Office (AEO) supports the academic and personal success of all medical students. Recognizing that individual students have different needs in order to be successful in medical school, various programs and services are available to all current BUSM medical students. Programs are designed to help students adjust to the rigors of medical school and strive to learn balance, with more effective study habits that promote and sustain lifelong learning. Through small group sessions and individual meetings, we work with students to leverage the necessary skills to balance academic and personal growth.

Programs and services include study skills enhancement, academic advising and coaching, USMLE preparation, academic accommodations for students with documented disabilities, peer tutoring, peer study groups, and personal counseling.
