Career Advising Student Advisory Board Tip of the Month

Muscles, Joints, Bones & Skin (MJBS) can be a demanding block. This month’s tip is to remember that all the physicians teaching and mentoring you at this stage are possible resources even beyond the classroom. Get to know your small group leads! You can always ask them about what their specialty is like and how they decided on a specialty when they were in your shoes!
