Choosing a medical specialty is one of the most significant decisions a medical student will make. And residency positions are increasingly competitive. The information and resources within this website can help medical students choose their specialty and residency with confidence, successfully land a residency position, plan their physician career, and make the most of their medical school experience to achieve their career goals.
Careers in Medicine (CiM) also helps faculty and staff advisors who advise medical students. This website provides information and resources that can help advisors effectively use CiM resources in working with students as well as improve their advising skills.
Students, faculty, and staff at U.S. M.D. medical schools can access CiM for free by signing in with their AAMC Account (also used for MCAT, AMCAS, and ERAS).
Students, faculty, and staff at Canadian medical schools can access CiM for free but must first contact their school's CiM liaison prior to first signing in with their AAMC Account.
Students, faculty, and staff at U.S. D.O. medical schools should first verify their school has licensed the CiM website. If a school has not purchased a subscription, students, faculty, and staff from that school must purchase an individual subscription after signing in with or creating an AAMC Account.
All other individuals must purchase a subscription to the CiM website after signing in with or creating an AAMC Account.
The ability for institutions or groups to purchase subscriptions in bulk, for example, for their students, faculty, or staff is forthcoming.
