Career Planning

AAMC's Careers in Medicine ( CiM) site is "a career planning program designed to help you choose a medical specialty and select and apply to a residency program.  This three phase process will guide you through the elements of career planning, including self-understanding, exploring a variety of medical careers, and finally choosing a specialty to meet your career objectives.  You can:

    -     Learn about making a good specialty choice through informative articles and useful tools
    -     Complete online self-assessments to help you identify your values, interests, skills, personality and practice needs
    -     Maintain your assessment results in a secure, confidential Personal Profile
    -     Review extensive career information for over 100 specialties through the CiM Specialty Pages
    -     Access decision-making tools designed to help your select a specialty to residency programs
    -     View timelines, sample CV's and residency interview questions to help you in applying to residency programs

As a compliment to the CiM site, the QCOM Career Exploration program guides you through each year's activities and your participation in:

    -     Student (specialty) interest groups (SIG) meetings
    -     "Lunch and Learn" sessions
    -     One-to-one meetings / small group sessions with advisors
You will receive additional information at the start of each academic year (through the course management system D2L).
