College can be a difficult time for many students. When problems at WestMed College, home, or work interfere with academic performance, students are encouraged to ask for a private conference with his or her program director, admission representative, or the Director of Education. You may have to deal with parents, teachers, dating or marriage, body image, work, not to mention helping your friends and their problems. No one has all the right answers, but WestMed has found the following websites that contain information from experts in the field and peers who may have been through similar experiences.
