Welcome to the Office of Student Affairs and Curriculum

About the Office

The Office of Student Affairs and Curriculum (OSAC) is the group of 35 professionals that most directly facilitates the activities of medical students at the Carver College of Medicine. Our mission is to provide an environment of scholarship and humanism in which our students can become the well-rounded physicians of tomorrow, fully prepared to enter into their professional lives focused on the well-being of their patients and communities.

OSAC consists of 10 units, each focused on an aspect of student life. Among our duties are the selection of students that will thrive in this academic environment; to facilitate the delivery of a medical curriculum that provides the best didactic and practical learning experiences possible; to provide opportunities for students to experience the world through research, service, travel and the humanities; and to support students throughout the learning process.
