Medical students commonly seek care to address a variety of concerns including, but not limited to: 

Psychological Care Appointment Scheduling

We welcome receiving your phone call or email to learn more about our services or to schedule your first appointment. Your first appointment will be a level of care assessment during which we will start to clarify whether you are best served by a therapist in our program or in the community to ensure you receive the highest quality of care for your specific concerns. 

Your clinical therapy record is housed exclusively within the Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience and is not part of your academic or medical record.

The psychiatry office is open Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm. Identify yourself as a medical student who would like to schedule an appointment. We will respond to your message as soon as possible.
