Careers in Medicine Faculty Advising Program

Faculty Advising at Oregon Health & Science School of Medicine is a continuity system of career advising for medical students throughout all four years of their medical education. In the first two years, students will be assigned to Colleges, based on the student’s stated future practice setting interest.

Students will choose Residency Advisors in their third year to assist with residency selection, applications and Match Day.
