As many of us are adjusting to the virtual ways of “doing” life, we understand these can be stressful, difficult, as well as uniquely rewarding times. OMED is here to help by providing students with resources and support to make your life as a distant learner easier.
OMED is currently operating remotely. We will continue to offer services and programming between 8 a.m.- 8 p.m. through various virtual platforms until further notice.
For questions related to Challenge, please check your admissions portal, review the Challenge website, or email Challenge@omed.gatech.edu.
Our Edge leaders and program ambassadors will continue to reach out to you, and welcome you reaching out to them. Sybrina Atwaters, Denise Ocasio Thomas, and Jelani Liddell will have remote open-door office hours for those of you who may want and need to talk with us.
Our new 'OMED COVID-19 Resources' page includes a great list of internal and external support resources that you may need to assist you and your families with living your best virtual life.
