MS1 Class Information – Sept. 1, 2022

No updates for MS1s this week, but please note the new Tip of the Month below.

Career Advising Student Advisory Board Tip of the Month 

In regards to getting involved in shadowing, research, and interest groups: It is still early, and this is not something to dedicate time to yet. Rather, prepare for Infections & Immunity (I&I) as it will be a lot of content very quickly again – so planning is ideal. The micro section of Sketchy is going to be a very valuable resource. Try to map out which videos you will need to watch daily or weekly.

Some students start taking electives in the Pathways, and this can be a great way to gain a well-rounded medical education. Check out the African American Health Disparities course which has been revamped by the co-founders (E19 students) of the Black Health Justice Pathway and will be the first course at UWSOM to discuss various topics such as abolition, community organizing, mental health, the history of Midwifery & Ob/Gyn in the U.S., and mass incarceration with experts from the Black community in, and outside of, academia.
