NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine’s Office of Student Affairs offers a wide range of advising services to help students succeed academically and become compassionate, culturally mindful primary care physicians.

All students are assigned an academic coach and a specialty advisor during orientation week, who provide counseling throughout the three-year curriculum

If you experience academic difficulties or require help developing particular clinical skills, your academic coach works with you and your course or clerkship director to develop a performance improvement plan. They also assist with accessing tutoring services and arranging appropriate training sessions at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island Simulation Center.

Those who are in need of academic help can participate in group question and topic review sessions that take place before scheduled exams in our peer tutoring program, which is led by senior medical students.

A series of workshops takes place each fall to help new students develop the skills necessary to achieve academic success. Topics include time management, learning styles, effective study habits, test-taking skills, and more.
