Welcome to the Student Life Collection

The Student Life Collection is a small collection of materials selected to help nursing and medical students:

  • Navigate the world of a student in the medical professions,
  • Take care of yourself both physically and mentally during what can be a very challenging phase of your life, and 
  • Understand what it means to be entering the medical field.

Titles include cookbooks, interview guides, stories from active medical professionals, and much more.

In this guide, the titles and resources have been divided into general categories which we hope will help you find what you are looking for faster. However, many topics overlap, and we recommend browsing the entire collection when you have time.



You can find the Student Life Collection in the Library's Reading Area near the windows.  Use the icons on the image to discover some of the offerings available.
