Rush Medical College: Advisor Program

All Rush Medical College students are assigned a transition advisor at matriculation.  Transition advisors are selected from faculty and staff who teach in the M-1 program .  The advisors are informed of current policies, procedures and trends affecting students' participation in curricular and non-curricular aspects of medical school by the Director of the advisor program, who is responsible for program planning, coordination and evaluation.  Students meet with their transition advisors throughout the first two years of medical school in group and individual settings to facilitate their adjustment to all aspects of medical school. Students are assigned a clinical advisor in their 3 rd year. These advisors are clinical faculty who meet individually with student to assist with development of plans for residency specialty choice and preparing for the residency match.
