The Four Societies at DGSOM
Individualized guidance from pre-orientation to graduation
Assistant Deans for Student Affairs
Every student at DGSOM belongs to one of our four societies: Utilis, Caritas, Levamentum, or Accendo. Each Society is led by an Assistant Dean for Student Affairs who is your go-to person for individualized guidance and support from your very first day of medical school until you graduate.
The Assistant Deans have a broad supportive role in student affairs, and serve as the primary contact for students in the following areas:
- Longitudinal advising from pre-orientation to graduation.
- Networking and connecting students with resources for enrichment opportunities.
- Providing resources and support during times of personal, academic, or professional adversity.
- Assisting the Associate Dean for Student Affairs with the preparation of the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) for residency applications.
