MS1 Class Information – March 28, 2024

Get ready for career planning

This is a friendly reminder that you can schedule your Intro to Career Planning appointment anytime through May. If you are interested in any of the very competitive specialties listed in the career planning timeline, please meet with your career advisor sooner rather than later. Email your career advisor if you can’t find a time that works for your schedule.

Plan about an hour for prep steps before your meeting:

ICYMI: Schedule now to have your Curriculum Vitae (CV) reviewed by Career Advising

Have your CV reviewed and edited by Career Advising as part of a CV group session. Click this link to register – space is limited.

In advance of the session, a career advisor will review your CV and provide personalized feedback after the session. During the group session, advisors will address common themes for improvement and answer your questions.

Career advisors encourage all Foundation students to have a completed CV by the time they start the Patient Care Phase. The advisors encourage all MS3s to begin working on this document now in preparation for residency applications this fall.

All half-hour sessions are virtual and start at 11 a.m. AK, noon PT, 1 p.m. MT. The sessions are open to all students. Instructions for how to prepare are given at the time of registration. Register now.

Upcoming sessions are:

  • April 5 and 19
  • May 3 and 17

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

If you haven’t met with your career advisor yet, get your meeting scheduled anytime through the end of May at a time that works with your schedule! Your career advisor can talk with you about your specialty interests including the timing of when you’ll get connected with specialty advisors. Read the extracurriculars advice found in the Foundations Phase section of the Specialty Guides for two specialties that you are interested in.
