Career Advising

All students are assigned to one of eight Career Advisors through their membership in one of the four Pritzker Societies: Coggeshall Society, Huggins Society, Lewis Society, and Rowley Society. The four Pritzker Societies are named for key figures who made seminal contributions to research, clinical care, and education at the University of Chicago.

The Pritzker Societies provide a context and opportunity for gaining advice over time from a broad array of individuals, ranging from peers to faculty. Each Society contains a balanced number of students drawn from each class, breaking down barriers between classes and promoting peer-to-peer layered mentoring.
