Career and professional development

The Office of Student Affairs at the UC Davis School of Medicine recognizes that a career in medicine is a lifelong journey. As such, the office provides a variety of career planning and professional development sessions throughout all four years of medical school. The core program is divided into several elements that are linked to your specific stage of training. Each of these elements is specifically designed to help you, as the student, along with your career adviser guide you towards identifying your passion within medicine, designing a specific path to help achieve the goals that you have set for yourself, and eventually help you get into the residency that is best suited for these goals.
