Learning Enrichment Office

The Learning Enrichment Office supports the enrichment of students’ learning in the medical curriculum by providing avenues by which students can receive additional content learning support through a tailored personalized review or enhancement of knowledge sessions with faculty, teaching specialists or near-peer student colleagues.

Opportunities for learning enrichment are available to students who wish to enhance or deepen their knowledge or for students who may have encountered academic difficulties. Students may request these services directly through the Learning Enrichment Office or by contacting unit leaders, course/clerkship directors, or the Office of Student Affairs. Participation is confidential and has no adverse effects on a student’s record. WCM-Q also provides referral as appropriate for academic or other concerns that may impact performance.
