Our Mental Health Counseling program stands out both locally and nationally in that
we are one of a few MS Counseling programs embedded in a medical school. This connection
is evident through our Interprofessional Education (IPE) experiences. You will engage in at least four IPEs over the course of your years with us. These
IPE experiences involve you having a three hour encounter in which you work collaboratively
with a PsyD, PA and DO student.
We also have the opportunity for you to engage in a Standardized Patient (SP) experience.
Mentorship is also something the faculty do above and beyond just advising you. We
also assign you a student mentor who is a second year student who meets with you to
help you navigate our program.
