Counseling Service

Settling into a new country and new circumstances of medical studies is a demanding task, especially if you have to do both at once.

If you experience difficulties adapting to the new reality of your life, feel overwhelmed, or just need to get something off your chest, our two Counselors are here to help you.

Contact either of them for help in gaining insight into whatever difficulties you are experiencing, so that nothing impedes your academic and personal development.

First three sessions with either of the Counselors are free of charge for all JU MC SME students.
