Student Life

Whether you’re a graduate research or specialty student, a summer research student or an undergraduate in the DDS or IDAP programs, Dr. Richard Rayman, Director of Student Life, is your advocate. Dr. Rayman provides direct assistance to students. He’ll gladly lend an ear, and if you need more he’ll help guide you to the right resources to solve any issues that come up during your time at the Faculty.

In addition to his role as student advocate, Dr. Rayman is integrally linked to the student body and community life of the school. More than helping the students organize events (he also organizes the enormously popular Rayman’s Run each fall), Dr. Rayman can also be found on the clinic floors, helping students to coordinate their treatment plans.

Whatever your needs, Dr. Rayman’s door is always open.

Accessing Health Services

Counselling and guidance services are available for students, with several clinical social workers on board to help offer support and professional help.

In order to make an appointment with a Wellness Counsellor, please contact the Health and Wellness Centre at 416-978-8030 to make a confidential counselling appointment. 


Health and Wellness 

Professional degrees can be taxing. Take advantage of the services offered by the U of T Health and Wellness Centre, which offers a full range of physical and mental health services. 

The Health and Wellness Centre is open year-round! Give them a call at (416) 978-8030.

Dentistry students can request a counselling appointment through self-referral by calling the Health and Wellness Centre 416-978-8030. 

Note: It is the mandate of Heath and Wellness to provide all University of Toronto students with accessible and timely care. In order to fulfill this mandate in a time of increasing numbers of students requesting care, the service provides only short-term therapy. Should a student require ongoing, long-term treatment, we will assist him/her in finding the appropriate community resource(s).
