Behavioral Health

The School of Osteopathic Medicine’s  Behavioral Health Department provides confidential counseling to Campbell University medical students, health professional students, graduate students, faculty and staff. We can discuss any number of issues that are important to you; however, most times people who seek counseling do so for some of the following reasons:

  • Academic Difficulty & Performance
  • Burnout
  • Study Strategies
  • Anxiety: testing, phobias, etc.
  • Depression
  • Relationship/family difficulties
  • Adjustment to illness and/or lifestyle changes
  • Anger Management
  • Stress Management

However, regardless of why you come in, expect to be met by and work with professionals who are committed to helping you capitalize on your own strengths/talents to overcome any issue in the most efficient way possible. Our goal is to help you better enjoy your life and education at Campbell University.

To ensure the safety and continued success of our medical student body, the Campbell University Behavioral Intervention Team for the School of Osteopathic Medicine (CUBIT-SOM), a sub-committee of the APPS Committee, serves osteopathic medical students by working with them and faculty to address and/or remediate any concerning event or pattern of personal behavior and/or professional interactionthat implies a student is a threat to themselves or others.


Concerned faculty/staff may fill out the electronic case referral form by clicking the link below. If the report is submitted at the end of the day on Friday, it will not be reviewed until the start of the following business day. Once a report is received you will be contacted by Dr. Dan Marlowe (Chair, Behavioral Health- CUSOM), for follow-up regarding the situation, and a team meeting will be scheduled. During the meeting, you as well as other pertinent campus and community individuals will be asked to present information regarding the student.

Upon conclusion, the CUBIT-SOM team may choose one of the following options: make a recommendation on the student’s continued enrollment or dismissal; continue to gather information and meet again; or monitor the situation for new developments. A formal letter detailing the team’s decision will be sent to the student and the appropriate program administrator.

The CUBIT-SOM will use policies outlined in the Student Handbook as a framework for its recommendations; however, the team reserves the right to utilize creativity to find the most appropriate solution as long as it falls in line with the policies of Campbell University. All discussions and deliberations of the CUBIT-SOM shall be in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
