Programs have been designed to help students with academic decisions, provide guidance about professional behavior and career choices and in general, help students in the process of becoming physicians. All first and second year students are assigned faculty mentors, with two mentors serving each module. At students' request, individual mentors can be assigned in the first two years. In addition, the Office of Student Services publishes the "Student Handbook" which details the activities of the college.
The Career Advising and Mentoring Program (CAMP), assists students throughout all 4 years in choosing a medical specialty. Career counseling begins the first year of medical school, consisting of presentations by various student organizations, specialty interest groups, and the Mentor program pairing matriculating students with both faculty members assigned to modules and upper-class men and women. At the end of their second year or beginning of their third year, all students are assigned or select a clinical faculty advisor in their designated field of specialty. These advisors help students access information about their desired specialty, or make informed decisions about future careers if undecided. Advisors help students create fourth year schedules, apply to residency programs, and prepare for residency interviews. An annual Career Fair links third year students (or interested MS1s and MS2s) with Residency Training Directors to obtain information about careers. Among workshops delivered annually are: a USMLE preparation workshop for MS2s, a Match Preparation for MS3s, a meeting on electives for MS3s, a meeting on ERAS and residency applications for MS4s, a Residency Interview Q & A Session with Residency Training Directors for MS4s, and an NRMP Rank Order List Meeting for MS4s.
