Academic & Personal Support at PCOM

dedication to their academic-professional goals, are very devoted to a variety of
community-societal issues. We understand that it can be often challenging to balance
the rigors of the PCOM academic curricula with other factors in our students' lives.
To support our students in reaching their goals, the Office of Student Affairs coordinates
