What is the Career Fair? 
The Career Fair is an opportunity to learn more about different medical specialties and prepare for your clerkships. Meet with representatives of many departments and specialties, find out what it means to be a doctor in that specialty and how you can become a competitive applicant.

The goal of Transitions 2 is to provide instruction in the skills required to serve as a functioning member of the health care team. Instruction will be provided on how to communicate with patients, best practices for obtaining information from the patient and developing an appropriate level assessment and plan.
