Choosing a Specialty
Welcome to the Career Advising section of our website. Choosing a medical specialty is one of the most significant decisions you’ll ever make. With increasing competition for residency positions, it's critical that you make your decisions strategically and contemplate which specialties might interest you early on during medical school.
This is where you will find basic information about different specialties to help you decide which one is right for you. Be sure to talk with physicians and faculty members you know, get involved with student interest groups and take advantage of career advising resources to learn more about the specialties you're interested in.
