Student Advisory Board (SAB)

Student Advisory Board (SAB) members provide feedback to enhance the career advising experience for all students. Members serve as liaisons to their cohorts on career planning initiatives.

2023-24 SAB Position Description

Role: Provide feedback on a committee focused on enhancing the career advising experience for students. Serve as a liaison to your cohort regarding career planning related items.

2023-24 Focus: The board will provide perspective as Career Advising develops a comprehensive “Road to Residency” series for clinical students, as well as programming for preclinical students. Specifically, the Board will focus on:

  • Content, timing, and delivery formats of the new Road to Residency series
  • Branding and messaging of the series

Time Commitment: This is an annual commitment, with the option of continued Board membership. Many members decide to remain on the board all 4 years. The role can be flexible, especially around the prioritization of academic pursuits.

  • Attend two to three 90-minute meetings per year: 1 meeting each in Autumn and Winter, with a possible 3rd meeting in Spring; other working group meetings will be arranged as needed
    • The Autumn Meeting will occur in later October, and run 6-7:30pm PT via Zoom
  • Respond to emails seeking input on career planning topics

Structure: The Board is composed of 20-25 student members, representing MS1s, MS2s, MS3s, and MS4s across each of the six WWAMI sites. The Board strives to amplify BIPOC voices.
