Optional student-led interest groups, programs and events are the final component of the “Career Advising and Counseling Program”. Interest groups, which are initiated and conducted by students, all have a faculty advisor. Currently, interest groups exist in anesthesiology, emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, medicine-pediatrics, neurology, ophthalmology, pediatrics, and radiology. Students interested in establishing an interest group should meet with Dr. Veitia.
The American Medical Association-Medical Student Section conducts an annual, and highly successful, “Specialty Speed Dating” event. This event was chosen as the AMA Event of the Month in December 2012.
