Student Affairs

Office of Student Affairs 

Welcome to the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine! The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) is here to provide support, service, and experiences that can assist medical students and physical therapy students through their educational journey in partnership with the Department of Medical Education (DME).

Student success is our mission, and our goal is to enhance student life by providing a supportive environment and resources that can assist students in balancing their career goals while maintaining holistic well-being.

OSA takes pride in providing students with opportunities to grow professionally both inside and outside of the classroom environment. We connect our medical students with career advisors through our Career Advising office starting in year 1 and spanning all 4 years, to help students with their career planning. We provide comprehensive wellness programming and offer wellness coaching and professional development workshops. Finally, we support our students’ varied interests in student government, community service, and understanding of health care specialties and issues by helping them navigate USF’s student government and organization system.

Our office also has the pleasure to plan and coordinate the major events medical students participate in, including White Coat Ceremony, Match Day, and Commencement. Lastly, our office offers walk-in appointments and assistance to all students in the College. Our doors are always open and no question is too small. We are so happy you’re here and look forward to working with you throughout your time in medical school. Again, we welcome you to USF!
