Student Services

The Office of Student Services exists to support and advance the interest of student-doctors, enhance their quality of life, and facilitate their academic endeavors while in attendance at Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine (LUCOM). The curriculum at LUCOM is rigorous and while it is designed to prepare student-doctors to become osteopathic physicians and serve the needs of the public, it places demands on the student-doctor and the student-doctor's family that often lead to situations that require outside assistance.

Guidance and Assistance

The Office of Student Services maintains an open-door policy to guide and advise student-doctors on a wide diversity of matters be them personal, emotional, spiritual, social, physical, financial, and/or academic. In addition, the Office of Student Services is responsible to provide oversight for, collaborate with, and coordinate student government and student organizations’ activities: including social, community service and outreach events, educational presentations, celebrations, and symposiums. The Office of Student Services also provides mentorship and remodeling services for student-doctors throughout their academic career at LUCOM.

Office of Academic Counseling

COM StudentsThe Office of Academic Counseling is available to offer individual assistance and guidance to student-doctors through services as study skills, test-taking strategies, time management, organization and structure.

Student-doctors are asked to fill out an Academic Counseling Intake Form and an Authorization for Records Release Form prior to their first meeting with the academic counselor.

The academic counselor supervises the LUCOM Tutorial Program and the Graduate Assistants who provide supplementary reviews. Student-doctors who are interested in finding a study group to fit their needs can utilize the Study Group Search Program, an optional program that is offered at the beginning of first and second semester each academic year, and be matched according to survey responses.

Schedule an Appointment with Jeni McGlauflin, Academic Counselor.
