Meeting with Your Counselor

The School of Medicine Counselors are a group of trained mental health professionals who assist medical students with many different aspects of life as a medical student. This includes supporting medical students with personal, academic, and career issues, as well as educational planning and decision-making.

The Careers in Medicine Program (CiM) is designed to empower students to make informed decisions about their lives and careers.  Take time to complete the inventories and  research specialty information on the Careers in Medicine website and discuss the results with your counselor, your mentor, and your faculty advisors.  You are strongly encouraged to meet with your assigned class counselor regularly. Students may stop by or call the Student Affairs Office at (313) 577-1463  to make an appointment.  It is never too early to begin career exploration and your class counselors can direct you to faculty advisors, helpful websites, and career planning events at the School of Medicine to guide you in your career exploration.
