Learning Enhancement for Geisel Students

Medical school will present a much greater academic challenge than college learning.

New and different ways to listen, read, record, and practice information can have a significantly positive impact on your ability to learn at Geisel.

The learning skills professionals at the Academic Skills Center (224 Baker Library) have extensive experience working with undergraduates, graduates, and adults.

We look forward to meeting and helping you succeed academically at Geisel.
