Students will work with medical educators to understand what is involved in a variety of career paths for new physicians, including academic medicine. In addition to discussion with faculty members, students will read books and articles on medical careers and interview three physicians on three different career paths. When feasible, students will shadow physicians engaged in varied career paths. On completion of this elective, students will be able to describe possible choices for their own careers. Total time expectation will be 25-30 hours per week.
