Career Advising Student Advisory Board Tip of the Month 

We hope you are enjoying the transition from MS2 to MS3! You can always ask your “big doc” for tips on these rotations, as we have done them all already. Make sure you read the webpage for each rotation and keep grading policies in mind. For example, rotations have varying shelf exam minimums to obtain honors. Also, doing well on the exam can often bump up your final grade. Use those study skills from MS2 to enhance your MS3 clerkship grades!
