Career advising is an integral pillar of our COMPASS program. This advising is primarily given through our network of Specialty Advisors. Your Advising Academy Leaders (assigned to you at the beginning of your M1 year are excellent resources to help you choose a Specialty Advisor). The Specialty Advisor database can be found under Roadmap to Residency – under the frequently used resources section.
Specialty Advisors can provide you guidance and advice for the field that you would like to know more about or ultimately go into for your residency. By your M3 year you must have at least one Specialty Advisor that you have reached out to and met with. We encourage students to have multiple Specialty Advisors that they feel comfortable with and have a rapport with for counsel and consolation to help them in the most crucial part of M4 year, applying to residency.
