RowanSOM Student Mental Health Center

In recognition of the rigorous nature of medical education and practice, RowanSOM is committed to providing timely, affordable access to expert mental health care to ensure the personal well-being and professional success of its medical students and residents.

Under the auspices of the Department of Psychiatry, our Student Mental Health Center exists to combat the high rate of psychological distress that arises in the process of becoming a physician. Dr. Elina Maymind, a board-certified psychiatrist and the program’s founding director; Dr. Ashley Martin, a board-certified psychiatrist; and Dr. Paul Furtaw, a licensed psychologist, specialize in tending to the mental, emotional and performance needs of rising medical professionals.

We offer confidential access to psychiatric evaluation, medication management, personal counseling and performance coaching services. Additionally, we assist medical students and residents to develop self-care practices that preserve health and protect against the onset of anxiety, depression and related concerns.

Services are provided off-campus at the Department of Psychiatry’s Mt. Laurel office location for maximum privacy and discretion. Accordingly, no students or residents are permitted to shadow or deliver services as part of this program. Additionally, in order to protect against role conflicts, our clinicians do not participate in the academic evaluation of medical students or residents.

We accept many insurance plans, including the student insurance plan. Students are eligible for services, regardless of their ability to pay.

  • Student must inform the receptionist of medical student/resident status.
  • Name, phone number and concerns will be requested.
  • A clinician will return the student's call within 24-48 hours.
