ICYMI From Syllabus to Specialty Panel Series with UW Physicians:

Hear from physicians in a wide range of specialties including many beyond the core clerkships

This program is designed for MS1s and MS2s, but may be of interest to MS3s who want to hear advice from physicians in specialties beyond the core clerkships.

The From Syllabus to Specialty Panel Series with UW Physicians is designed by Career Advising with support and facilitation from our student advisory board members with the goal to help students connect block content to specialties and career paths throughout Foundations. You’ll be hearing from some amazing UW physicians who will be talking about their specialty, career path and providing advice for applying to residency. There will be time for questions. All panels are one hour, virtual and will be recorded. This panel series kicks off during Autumn Integration week with:

    • Dermatology, Family Medicine & Internal Medicine 

    Tuesday, Nov. 1: 5 p.m. AK, 6 p.m. PT, 7 p.m. MT

New this issue! Career Advising Student Advisory Board – Tip of the Month

Making your fourth-year schedule can be difficult, but there are people who can help! You can meet with Career Advising [] and with people who have been in your shoes. Fourth-year students who applied to your specialty of interest, current residents and physician mentors are great resources for scheduling advice! However, don’t stress too much about your schedule right now. You can always move it around up to six weeks before the start date – and almost everyone makes changes to their schedule as they develop interests over time and are in tune with when they’ll need breaks, more time for Step 2 studying, etc.  🙂
