Welcome to AACOM's Career Advising Program 





Welcome to AACOM's guide to navigating the complex and varied routes to a fulfilling osteopathic medical career.

Prior to entering medical school, many of you worked to 'keep your options open' regarding choosing a specialty that would be a good match for you.  Now you are faced with choosing both a specialty and a residency.  We also know that, prior to and during medical school, many of the critical choices regarding your educational pathway, are made for you.  This often means that you have had little experience with career-related research, reflection and decision making

Select the links at the left to begin your journey and find the information you may need to maximize the success of decision making regarding your specialty and residency choice.
