We assigned advisors from day one, but the students werent going to see them. We started looking at what motivates medical students, and in the first two years, it is grades. With that in mind, Olive and Dr. Tom Kwasigroch, associate dean for Student Affairs at the medical school, proposed a curriculum change that made career exploration mandatory for all Quillen students via a three-year course called the Career Explorations Program. The course involves self-assessments that help individuals determine what type of doctors they might be best suited to become. It also includes a variety of requirements to better prepare students to make these significant career decisions. In that first year, physicians from different specialties come do panel discussions, the students learn how to prepare a curriculum vitae, they commit to looking at specialties and they meet one-on-one with a faculty advisor for exploration of interests and abilities, Olive said. In the second and third years, there are more panels, they update their CVs and they meet with the advisor again. Finally, they select a clinical advisor to help them as they approach their final year of medical school. The Class of 2012 was the first class to complete the revamped career advising at Quillen, and students in each class thereafter have taken part. It has had markedly positive outcomes and we plan on continuing it for the foreseeable future, Olive said. This is important because we want students to pursue careers theyll feel fulfilled and happy in because theyre going to be better physicians that way.
