ICYMI: Don’t forget to complete Infection Control Training by Aug. 10, 2023

Infection Control Training is an annual UWSOM compliance requirement for all students, including MSTP students and students on leave of absence.

Please complete the Canvas training, quiz and attestation by Aug. 10.  You can enroll with your UW NetID using this link:

You will need to watch the donning and doffing PPE videos, then complete a three-question attestation in Canvas followed by the five infection control training modules and a quiz.

Compliance will email you a certificate of completion which you can upload to your Castlebranch UW71 Compliance Tracker prior to Aug. 10, 2023.

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

Consider setting up shadowing or research (even short case reports) within the specialties that you might like. Step 1 dedicated and clinical rotations come quickly, and you won’t have much time for these things once they start.

Use your AAMC CIM interest assessment as a launch for shadowing, especially if you are interested in specialties outside the third-year core clerkships
