Academic Advising

Academic Advising

Alexander American University – School of Medicine has the interests of all of its students at heart. Medical school can be very challenging and the experience is different from that of many other undergraduate studies. Having to adjust to the volume and density of information presented in class often leaves students feeling unsure of their ability to learn and integrate well enough for success. For many students, not being at the top of their class is a new experience. To this end, AAU seeks to ensure that ensure each student takes full advantage of the University’s resources in order to optimize his or her experiences on the path to accomplishing their dreams.

A Promotions Committee is appointed to monitor the academic progress of each new class that matriculates. The committee, comprised of five faculty members, represents the basic sciences and clinical departments respectively. After students’ performances are assessed, recommendations for advising with the Dean are made when deemed necessary. An associate dean for student affairs also assists students with problems of any nature including personal issues that students may wish to keep separate from their academic progress. She or he writes letters of recommendation for students applying for scholarships and fellowships; edits the Deans’ letters for consistency; and co-signs them. An associate dean meets weekly with the academic advisers to discuss themes that may emerge regarding students’ academic problems in order to bring broader attention to such.
