VCOM Students

Center for Institutional, Faculty, and Student Success

The Center for Institutional, Faculty, and Student Success has been developed to advance the quality of teaching and learning by promoting a College culture where the VCOM community works collaboratively to champion educational excellence.


Academic Advising

Each new student is assigned a biomedical faculty academic advisor at the beginning of their OMS 1 year. During the students’ OMS 2 year they are also assigned a clinical faculty Academic Advisor who can provide more guidance specific to clinical rotations. Students in their OMS 3 and 4 years may continue to seek guidance from their biomedical faculty Academic Advisor, clinical faculty Academic Advisor, DME, or Department Chairs.
