Academic Coaching/ Learning Specialist
Medical school poses some unique learning challenges. Many students feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of material, and some realize their usual study habits won’t be enough to meet those challenges. ICOM Students have access to free academic coaching through the Learning Specialists. Academic coaching can help improve study skills, time management, organization, and/or test taking skills. Students are encouraged to proactively get help; however, the Learning Specialists can help at any point in the school year.
Some examples of ways the Learning Specialist can help are:
Creating a study plan for an exam
Offer test-taking strategies and ways to deal with test anxiety
Discuss best practices for group work
Model better reading and memory retention strategies
Discuss learning and study strategies, critical thinking, and problem solving
Prioritizing tasks and reducing stress
Be an outside perspective, offering insight into how you can be a better student
