Student Affairs

Welcome from the Student Affairs Team located at the Learner Wellness Centre.

While a career in medicine is exciting, challenging and rewarding, there are times of exhaustion, disillusionment and stress. Our Student Affairs team is there to support the personal and professional growth of medical students throughout the four years of medical school at Queen's University by providing advocacy and advice in the areas of Academics, Careers and Wellness.

We want to get to know you and support you. We will have many opportunities to meet through our wellness curriculum but know you can contact us anytime. If you find yourself wondering about whether to contact us – please do!

For appointments, please contact learnerwellness@queensu.ca, stop by our office in the Undergraduate Medical Office or call our Student Affairs Assistant, Hayley Morgenstern at 613-533-6000 x78451. We look forward to meeting with you!

Our confidential fax # is (613) 533-6389. Visit our website for additional information: https://meds.queensu.ca/academics/undergraduate/student-affairs
