Who We Serve
Executive Functioning Support + Medical Coaching
The mental processes that enable executive functioning include self-regulation, planning, focus, attention, and memory, among others. At LAS, we understand that executive functioning skills develop at their own pace and underscore the reasons for our differentiated approaches to learning and achieving. LAS Educational Coaches recognize that everyone learns in their own way and that is why Educational Coaching begins with an initial consultation and thorough history-taking, in order to clarify individual strengths, emerging skills, and potential obstacles and provide successful learning outcomes.
Our Medical Coaches are here to provide executive functioning support for all of our students. We recognize that everyone learns in a different way and at a different pace, especially throughout the medical education journey. Through our Executive Functioning Support, we can help medical students overcome learning obstacles, understand their own strengths and weaknesses, and ultimately help provide a more confident and positive learning experience all around.
Case management is a hallmark of LAS and it is one of many services we offer that differentiates our academic support from conventional tutoring. All LAS Medical Coaches are responsible for providing case management support to students, which includes communication and collaboration with educators, therapists, doctors, families, and individuals.
Clinical Social Work
Clinical social work is a specialty practice area of social work which focuses specifically on the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illness, emotional, and other behavioral disturbances. At LAS, we recognize that the medical education journey can be emotionally draining, discouraging, and defeating at times. Our Medical Coaches work with students to ensure that they have the emotional and educational support they need to succeed throughout their programs.
Personal Essay Support for ERAS Application
Getting ready to submit your ERAS Application can feel a bit intimidating, but our Medical Coaches are here to help support you through the process. We will ensure that your personal essay is reflective of your experiences as a medical student and represents your strengths and interests as you continue into your residency and fellowship programs.
Study Skills Counseling and Educational Therapy
Since each student is unique in the way they learn, we believe it’s crucial to look at each student’s studying habits through the lens of an educational therapist. Educational therapy is a one-on-one intervention used to support individuals with a range of learning challenges that include learning disorders, neurological deficits, and other related problems. Our Educational Therapy services are designed to support students throughout medical school while utilizing case management to support individual learning and achievement.

Our Medical Coaches are here to break everything down for you, ensure that you get the academic support that you need, and advocate on your behalf.
