A key feature of the program is the creation of an ombudsman position to hear the complaints or concerns of the students. Raquel Arias, M.D. (Ob/Gyn) and Ron Ben-Ari, M.D. (Internal Medicine) are the ombudsmen for this school year. The ombudsmen will have access to the Dean, Mr. Anderson and Dr. Larsen to resolve issues. In addition, students may go directly to these individuals.
