Gabinete de Apoio ao Estudante
Logotipo GAE

The Student Support Office (GAE) was established in 2018 replacing the previous Student Support Area (3As) under a shared initiative between the Lisbon School of Medicine (FMUL) and the Student Association of the Lisbon School of Medicine (AEFML), developing several shared projects but also creating new ones.

The mission of the Office is to transversally support all the areas of personal, social and professional development of the student throughout their academic career, favouring a space of integration and openness to diversity and personal growth.

Additionally, it was decided at the beginning of the academic year 2020/2021 to create in the Newsletter a section dedicated to Well-being – SimplesMENTE, with the objective of sharing practical tools for all the Academic Community, with different themes every month.
