The training period in the delivery of medical education has to be utilized for the comprehensive development of the student. Acknowledging the presence of multiple problems in the life of a medical student is inevitable to plan and implement a student support system within each of the medical institutions. In fact, specific standards have been laid down by the national and international regulatory bodies to minimize stress, resolve problems, and holistically address all the issues which can together influence the academic performance of a student. The need of the hour is to adopt a student-centered approach that enables the students to understand their thoughts and feelings better and this can be streamlined with the help of a mentor or teacher in a confidential and nonjudgmental manner. In conclusion, the life of a medical student is full of ups and downs, and thus, there is an indispensable need to develop a student support system, which ensures the comprehensive development of them. Moreover, the success of such a system will be determined by the institutional culture, wherein all the stakeholders work together for the betterment of the students.
