Career Advising Student Advisory Board Tip of the Month 

Now that you’re getting used to medical school, use your Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) account to take this  fun assessment to see what specialties you might fit well  for you. Let your results help guide your summer research, shadowing, etc.  If you enjoy this assessment, the AAMC has other assessments (such as specialties-based on values, personality, skills) to take.
