Career Advising Student Advisory Board – Tip of the Month

We hope Step 1 Dedicated is going well! We won’t overwhelm you with any career advising tasks but pay attention to which topics you’re enjoying reviewing. This might be a helpful clue as to which specialty you will enjoy one day. Keep up the great work!
