Career Advising at Pritzker (CAP)

The Pritzker School of Medicine incorporates career advising and professional development into all aspects of students' medical education.

Career Advisors and Advising Societies

Pritzker Students are assigned a career advisor based on their participation in the Pritzker Societies. View more information on the societies and the role they play in student life via the links here.

During the third and fourth year of medical school, Pritzker Students attend one-on-one meetings with their advisors to help guide them through the matching process.
