Portfolio Coaches (PCs) play a vital role in the VUSM advising system. Upon matriculation, every student is assigned a PC with whom they will consult throughout medical school. PCs guide students toward informed self-assessment and life-long learning. They help students critically appraise data about their performance and translate those assessments into action plans for future learning. Amy Fleming, M.D., M.H.P.E., coordinates the PC program.
