Theme: Exploration

The suggested checklist for a first-year medical student is centered around a theme of self-exploration and career exploration.

Students can enter medical school with or without a very confident idea about what kind of physician they wish to become. Regardless, it is important that the first year of medical school is used to explore opportunities that can help a student learn more about themselves and what interests them. The items in this checklist will provide guidance to this exploration process.
