Office of Student Wellness (OSW)
ACHE/ARCOM Office of Student Wellness is in the Office of Student Affairs on the first floor of the ARCOM building. We are here to help students thrive during their time in medical school. We are available to help students develop and maintain healthy habits for mental and physical wellness. Our services are individualized for each student based on need. We provide crisis intervention, monthly workshops for mental health awareness, brief counseling, and support groups. Campus Security is available 24/7 for physical and mental health emergencies. If you need support, please schedule an appointment by calling Student Services at 479-308-2200 or email Student Services. Appointments are available in person and virtual using a HIPPA approved online platform.
Clinical services are strictly confidential. No information is released without your permission, except in extreme, life-threatening emergencies or when required by law.
ACHE/ARCOM has arranged for Mercy Clinic Chaffee Crossing (across the street from the COM)
to act as the Student Health Service for ACHE/ARCOM Students. Same Day/Next Day appointments are available within 24 hours of a student requesting an appointment for acute care needs.
