Support Services

A good leg to stand on…

Medical school is a challenging journey, but the College of Podiatric Medicine and WesternU are always here for support. The CPM Learning Skills Specialist and faculty mentors offer academic support to our students as requested. WesternU also has the LEAD department for academic support and CDHP offers accommodations for any students who need it.
