Career Advising Student Advisory Board Tip of the Month 

Winter break is a great time for early specialty exploration! Did you get a chance to take the specialty assessment we suggested last month? If so, now you can check out the AAMC CiM Specialties Profiles and see things like the five most frequently encountered conditions for each specialty.

To explore specialties even further, go to Career Advising’s career and specialty exploration podcasts and videos. Having this data will be super helpful for when Career Advisors have time to meet with you starting in January!
