Update on the 5-minute survey

From Sara Kim, Ph.D., associate dean for Educational Quality Improvement: Thank you so much for completing the 5-min internal survey during your class time. The graph below says it all. This is the first time I have seen this level of consistently high response rates including two campuses, Montana and Wyoming, at 100 percent.

Every voice helps us with the medical school accreditation report and contributes to ongoing quality improvement. Thank you!

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

Now that you’re getting used to medical school, use your AAMC account to take this fun assessment to see what specialties you might fit well in. Let your results help guide your summer research, shadowing, etc.

If you enjoy this one, the AAMC has other assessments (specialties based on values, personality, skills) that you can take here.
