Welcome to Career Planning in Medicine, part of the Office of Medical Learner Affairs of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences

At the OMLA Career Planning Office, we hold hundreds of confidential, individual student meetings per year with medical learners of all years. Whether you are a first-year student unsure about career preferences, or a fourth-year student needing help with specifics of residency application, we provide support and advice tailored to your needs.

To support you, we use an approach adapted from the American Academy of Medical Colleges’ Careers in Medicine (CiM) program, which is structured in four stages:

This four-phase model helps you to consider your skills, values, attributes, preferences, and career options to find a career that will bring out the best in you!

The Action Plans, tools, and resources we provide here will help you on your journey to growing into your professional identity. We look forward to working with you.
