Faculty Advisory Program

Norma_Perez

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Faculty Advisory Program website. Choosing a medical specialty is one of the most significant decisions you will make in your lifetime and with the increasing competition to enter a residency program, we make every effort that all medical students are assigned a career advisor. Throughout your medical schooling, you are assigned a career advisor to help you with your career planning and development.

Choosing a medical specialty is one of the most significant decisions you will make. With increasing competition for residency positions, it's critical that you make your decisions strategically. Careers in Medicine (CiM) can help you.
