Career Advising Student Advisory Board Tip of the Month
We hope you’re adjusting well to medical school! You’ve probably heard about our school’s summer Triple III [education.uwmedicine.org] requirement. If you’re interested in a competitive specialty (e.g., dermatology), it will be helpful if your project is within this field. However, many residency programs look positively on research projects even if they are not in the specialty you end up applying into as it shows dedication and can build valuable skills.
Research not your jam? No worries! Lots of specialties don’t need it. Rural Underserved Opportunities Program (RUOP), Scholarship of Integration (SOI) or another community experience can be very useful to your career goals.
Undecided on your specialty? This is super common; don’t worry! You can start exploring specialties with interest group events and the Career Advising Video Library [education.uwmedicine.org].
