First 100 Weeks Advising
Throughout the first two years of medical school, the Office of Career Advisement, in conjunction with the Office of Student Affairs, helps students explore options for their future as physicians. During this time, students are introduced to tools available through Careers in Medicine to help them identify specialty areas of interest. In addition, students are advised on options for how to spend the summer between the first and second years of medical school to enhance their experiences in preparation for future careers. Prior to the end of the second year, students meet with their career advisors to discuss individualized third year schedules.
