Career Advising Student Advisory Board Tip of the Month 

You’re almost done with the Patient Care Phase! Ideally, you have narrowed down your career choices to one to two specialties with a secondary specialty until fourth- year if one of the specialties is not family medicine (FM), pediatrics (Peds), or internal medicine (IM).  Meet with UWSOMOM Career Advising and/or your specialty career advisor to review competitiveness, MS4 electives, and, for a few specialties,away rotation planning. If you want to do an away rotation, get your CV updated!
