Personal Care and Concern Referral

Are you worried about a fellow Stritch student?  Does something seem not quite right, but you don't want to ask? The Personal Care and Concern Referral was designed for Stritch students to express their concerns about the wellbeing of their classmates.  The referral can be completed anonymously.  Upon filling out the referral, someone from the Student Affairs team will check in with the student about whom you're worried to make sure he/she is okay and receiving help if necessary.  Our goal in creating this referral is to ensure that all Stritch students receive the care and support they need to be successful in medical school.  Please click here for the Personal Care and Concern Referral.
