Learning is better when it is together.
Learning Specialists work one-on-one with each student to provide an appropriate level of support throughout his/her time at the College of Medicine-Phoenix. This proactive work helps students see themselves as learners and supports them in identifying areas of strength and further development. The goal of this specialized service is to support each student in their development as well-rounded, highly skilled, and self-aware professional.
As part of the Student Affairs, the Learning Specialists in Student Development work closely with the Dean of Students, the Career and Professional Advisors, the Registrar, the Director of Financial Aid, the Assistant Director of Student Wellness and Engagement, and the Manager of Alumni and Student Engagement. All work in concert to facilitate our medical students’ journey through medical school.

Healthy People Seek Help
“A lot of people don’t know what therapy is, especially people who come from a medical orientation,” said Dr. Katy Fielder, one of the licensed psychologists that work with students from the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix. “Some of them are anticipating it to be more like a doctor’s structured interview.”
Fielder is one half of the Anxiety Resource Center, which she co-founded with her colleague, Dr. Laura Huser. The pair of psychologists have been working with medical students for the last several years. This longitudinal exposure to the common issues medical students face has helped them better hone their practice to most effectively help this specialized demographic.
