  • Support students' transition into university life,
  • Assist students who may encounter academic or personal issues,
  • Support the general physical and mental welfare of students,
  • Develop students' potential and widen their horizons via extra-curricular activities and/or experiential learning,
  • Support medical students' career development by exposure to a range of career exploration opportunities prior to graduation.
