Advisory Deans

Advisory Deans

University of Louisville School of Medicine introduced the Advisory Dean program in the 2007-2008 academic year.  Advisory Deans play a vital role in the transition into medical school and the development into a physician.

The duties of the Advisory Deans include both individual meeting as well as group meetings with their students.  In addition to the Associate Dean for Medical Student Affairs, Advisory Deans also write a portion of the Medical Student Professionalism Evaluation (MSPE).  Throughout the year, Advisory Deans advise current students on the transition into and through medical school, study techniques, Step-1 and Step-2 preparation, interview skills, specialty choices, and other topics as they arise.  All medical students are assigned an Advisory Dean upon matriculation.  Students will remain with their Advisory Dean throughout their medical school years unless the Advisory Dean leaves their position.  Students are strongly encouraged to regularly contact their Advisory Dean with advising-related questions or concerns.  Medical students are expected to attend all meetings set up by their Advisory Dean.

Once a semester, Advisory Deans meet with the Office of Medical Student Affairs to discuss any updates or changes that may have occurred over the semester prior.  According to the Graduation Questionnaire and Advisory Dean Survey, the Advisory Dean program has been very successful and beneficial to the students and administration.
