Academic Support Office:
Effective study skills involve awareness of how to learn, knowing how to retain, organize, integrate, and apply information, problem-solving, and successfully balancing life in the process. Recognizing that everyone needs support to be successful in medical school, various resources are free and available to all current UCLA medical students. Through informal counseling sessions, the Student Affairs Office helps students to identify potential causes of stresses, difficulties, and sub-optimal performance.
