Academic Advisors

Students who have been awarded the The William A. Norcross, M.D. ’70 Award will have access to consultation with a few experienced psychiatrists, who are there to help the students academically, as well as personally should the patients need someone to speak to.

These academic advisors serve the role that we wish for the award recipient to play in the lives of others throughout their upcoming professional career.
