New Leadership Prioritizes Undergraduate Involvement in Medical School

Allison Brashear, MD, MBA, UB’s vice president for health sciences and the dean of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and John C. Panepinto, PhD, senior associate dean for biomedical education, have been looking for a way to bring Jacobs School undergraduates into the fold. They accomplished that goal with the inaugural Jacobs School Research and Graduate Programs Open House.

Your Academic Success Toolkit

Students in Academic Success Center.

The Academic Success Center provides tutoring services to students in the undergraduate programs offered through the Jacobs School.

This center is exclusive to Jacobs School students, and so are the tutors. They’ve been in your shoes, and offer individualized attention so that you can succeed in your coursework.

Individual Approach, Individual Attention

It’s important to have enthusiastic, supportive professors. As a Jacobs School student, you will benefit from strong academic relationships with your instructors. 

Many of our professors have received honors and recognition for their teaching abilities and the crucial guidance they provide students to help them develop skills for research, critical thinking, and creative innovation.

What does that mean for you? You can pursue your goals knowing that your professors have your best interests in mind. It means our faculty will help you through the challenging times and encourage you when you need it most.
