Here’s your first “Tip of the Month” from the Career Advising Student Advisory Board

Welcome! Every month, you’ll get a tip in this newsletter to help you stay on track on career planning.

You’ve gotten (or will soon get) tons of emails about extracurriculars. This may seem overwhelming during FMR, but think big picture about what might interest you career-wise. If you can, try to take on a leadership position for an interest group, volunteer project, or committee.  Make sure you don’t overcommit; but picking one or two extracurriculars this year to pour into is a fantastic way to kick off med schoo!

Pathway applications will also open this fall and can be helpful in learning how to better serve minoritized communities. Learn more about Pathways here.
