Events
Office of Financial Aid

We host numerous events during the year on both the Philadelphia and Georgia campuses as part of our Financial Wellness program.

Events are designed to enhance participants' understanding of debt management, financial planning, budgeting and more.


Table Topics

Each month during lunch hour, a member of the financial aid team on each campus hosts a table in the lobby to showcase different topics related to financial literacy. Stop by for some information and get some financial aid questions answered!

BYOL Workshops

Bring your own lunch (BYOL) to these interactive workshops hosted during your lunch hour. Topics include:

  • Making your own budget
  • External scholarship tips and tricks
  • Money basics
  • Accessing your credit history
  • And more!

Blackboard Collaborate Webinars

An interactive webinar is hosted once per term and features a different topic. PCOM's debt management counselors use Blackboard Collaborate to hold the webinars. Learn something new in less than an hour!

One-on-One Counseling

Schedule an appointment anytime with a debt management counselor to talk about financial aid, making a budget, managing debt and more. You may even want to meet more than once!

Lecture Series

Each spring, from March through May, several lectures are held on each campus as part of our Lecture Series. We host professionals from the fields of home loans & home buying, financial planning & investing and student loan debt management. 

Special Events

Student groups, classes, and PCOM offices may request a visit from the debt management counselors to present on any financial topic at a club or program meeting. Past events have included:

  • PEDtalk on the GA-PCOM campus on "the importance of financial wellness."
  • Small focus groups hosted by Hickory Pointe Financial Group, an Ameriprise Private Wealth Advisory Practice.
  • Annual debt management presentations for the graduating Physician Assistant classes.
  • Annual new student financial aid reception hosted during orientation week on each campus.

Student Advisory Board on Financial Wellness

The purpose of this advisory board is to assist the debt management counselors in identifying the needs of PCOM & GA-PCOM students as they relate to developing stronger financial capabilities. Participants will share their experiences as students of PCOM and provide perspectives on the financial aspects of their lives. This group will meet in person not more than once per term and dinner will be provided.

The Office of Financial Aid will then use this feedback to drive decisions as we further develop the overall financial literacy programming on each campus.

Participants must be willing to speak openly about money and their relationship with it within the confines of a small group of peers and the debt management counselors.
