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

We hope you are enjoying finishing your first block! You may have been thinking about getting involved in shadowing, research, and interest groups, but it is still early; take your time so you don’t overcommit. Instead, prepare for Infections & Immunity (I&I) and just as before, it will be a lot of content very quickly. Planning is ideal.

The micro section of Sketchy is going to be a very valuable resource. Try to map out which videos you will need to watch daily or weekly.

Some students start taking Pathways electives, and this can be a great way to gain a well-rounded medical education. Check out the FAMED 525 African American Health Disparities course which will be offered to all WWAMI students every Autumn quarter on Zoom and in person in Seattle. This course has been revamped by the co-founders (E19 students) of the Black Health Justice Pathway and will be the first course at UWSOM to discuss various topics such as abolition, community organizing, mental health, the history of Midwifery & Ob/Gyn in the U.S., and mass incarceration — with experts from the Black community in, and outside of, academia.
