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

We hope you had a restful winter break! With the new year, it may be helpful to take stock of where you are and where you are going.

Complete AAMC CiM’s Specialty Indecision Scale as part of your process for continuing to narrow down to two specialties of interest (with different levels of competitiveness) by Spring if possible.

If your specialty recommends away rotations, now is the time to review how away rotations work, finish updating your CV, and start your VSLO application components, including gathering a letter of recommendation. The UWSOM Registration Team has put together a great compilation of resources regarding away rotations on their website. Many programs offer scholarships so be sure to look at the websites of programs you are interested in, particularly their GME or Justice/Equity/Diversity/Inclusion department site. Also, the AAMC lists URiM Opportunities for Visiting Students, and there’s a separate site called Funded Away Rotations for Minority Medical Students (FARMS) Database.
