LCOM Advisor Survey 2018

Hello, my name is Audrea Bose, a rising second year medical student, and I am working for the Office of Medical Student Education with Dr. Zehle and Emma Faustner this Summer on an advising project. I’m hoping to gain some insight on the perspectives of the faculty advisors to collect more information about how our advising protocols can be improved. Your help can go a long way and I hope to better our advising system both for the faculty and students. I really appreciate your participation, knowing you have such busy schedules!

This brief survey aims to gather faculty advisor attitudes and opinions on the current advising system in place at the Larner College of Medicine with the goal of identifying any shortcomings and strengths to help guide changes in training and/or programming. The survey is meant for Professionalism, Communication, and Reflection (PCR) Mentors and Specialty Advisors. All responses will be kept confidential and are for internal use only.

There are 9 questions in this survey.
