Confidential psychiatric services, including counseling and medication management, are available to all medical students with professional courtesy. Individual psychotherapy, couples and family counseling are available. Hours are by appointment. Please see the contact information based on the specific service below. 

Medical Student Counselor

A licensed professional counselor is available for medical students to discuss best direction for services and for brief, problem-focused counseling. Students receive free sessions from BSOM. Please contact Ms. Gillespie at or 937-245-7171.

WSU Psychiatry Resident Clinic

Psychiatry residents provide individual, couples, or family therapy on a weekly basis, which means if medication management is needed, this can also occur. This is $20 per session. The treatment can be short-term or long-term. Currently, the appointments may be in-person or virtual (via WebEx), and that determination is made on a case-by-case basis. The first step is a brief phone call to 937-775-7792 – please state that you would like to talk with someone about the psychotherapy clinic. Due to billing limitations, students with Medicaid cannot be seen in this clinic.

WSU Counseling and Wellness Center

The Counseling and Wellness Center offers a wide range of therapeutic services including group, individual, couples, and family therapy to registered Wright State University students.

Appointments are available by appointment for evaluation and medication management. There is no charge for psychiatric appointments for medical students.
