A. The Careers in Medicine Program
This program, developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), is available for all medical students at the College of Osteopathic Medicine for making career and life decisions. Its four-step program was designed to help students understand their options for choosing a specialty and it also provides guidance for applying to a residency program.
The program’s interactive website consists of several self-assessment and decision-making exercises, a timeline that encourages students to keep up with career milestones, descriptions of 135 specialties/sub-specialties, valuable links to conduct on-line research of specialty organizations and publications, and many other useful components.
The Office of Clinical Education employs a “Career Coordinator” to facilitate student interaction with this program, and provides additional career resources to assist student preparation for Internship/Residency Interviews.
