MD Program Advising System

At the beginning of the medical school program, each student will be assigned to a medical student advisor. The medical student advisor will meet with students in groups and individually. The medical student advisors will coordinate discussion of careers in medicine, preparation for United States Medical Licensing Exams (USMLE) Steps 1 and Step 2, elective selection and any other support issues that arise. During the last half of medical school, medical student advisors in coordination with the Associate Dean for Student Affairs will take responsibility for preparation of the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) required for residency application.

Sometime during the third year of medical school, students will select a career advisor from among clinical faculty in their area of interest. The career advisor, along with the medical student advisors, will guide students toward adequate preparation for residency in their chosen area of specialization.
