ICYMI: Apply to join the Admissions Committee

Rising MS3s and MS4s are welcome to apply to join the UWSOM Committee on Admissions. We accept a limited number of new committee members each year. Students WWAMI-wide are able to participate in our virtual interview process.

Please see this document to learn more about this opportunity, including the link to apply by the deadline, this Sunday, July 16.

If you’re already a member of the Admissions Committee (you’ve interviewed for us in the past), there is no need to reapply.

“Tip of the Month” from the Career Advising Student Advisory Board

Hope you’re all enjoying rotations! Check out the Pearls of Wisdom document to see how students have excelled on each of these rotations.

On these rotations, try to get feedback from your attendings at least once a week. Some attendings are better at offering feedback than others. If they aren’t giving you clear steps to improve, ask, “what can I be doing to start functioning as an intern?” or, “what is one thing in particular I can work on next week?”

Feedback fatigue is real though, so never take anything personally and just see this all as helpful coaching!
