- Academic Advisors
Academic advisors meet regularly with all students to provide support and guidance on university policies and procedures, to help you avail yourself of the university's many resources, and to ensure that you are making progress toward graduation.

Some common ways that you will engage your RCF include: site identification (this is your responsibility, but the RCF is a valuable resource) clinical site approval pre-clinical planning Clinical Bound date selection site visits advising for clinical course registration bi-weekly review of Typhon materials (time logs, self-evaluations, SOAP notes, etc.) grade assignment.
