Careers in Medicine

Careers in Medicine at VCU: Find your fit!

According to surveys of VCU M4 students, approximately 65 percent of our students change their minds during medical school about the medical specialty they want to pursue.

The Careers in Medicine@VCU (CiM@VCU) program is a four-year integrated curriculum designed to support the life of a medical student, selecting their paths in medicine, and helping students develop career planning skills to assist in residency and beyond. The goal is in four years to help students find their fit with the specialty that best suits them!
