Career Advising Student Advisory Board – Tip of the Month

Many of you are finishing the Patient Care Phase. After Step 2, many of you will do a rotation in the field you wish to enter. Now is the time to contact your specialty career advisor(s), if you are not already sure you are on their advising list. Be sure to check in with them. Get on their radar as the new application cycle begins (e.g., application strategies based upon their assessment of your competitiveness).
