Navigating Through Medical School to Residency
Finding your way through medical school, making decisions, and landing a residency can be a big challenge. To help provide some clarity, the Office of Student Affairs works with a dedicated group of senior students every year to curate, update, and publish a website for students, by students. Check out the CaseMed Guide Roadmap to Residency linked below. (single sign-on required)
Creating and Maintaining a CV
The Curriculum Vitae is an essential document that needs to be maintained throughout a physician's career. Medical students will need to have a CV ready starting in their first year; this will be used for requesting letters of recommendation, applying for scholarships, applying for residency, and more.
Check out the video below where Geiger Society Dean Dr. Marjorie Greenfield walks you through the CWRU CV template step-by-step.
