Columbia~Bassett Program
 
Choosing a Career


The Columbia-Bassett curriculum is designed to allow students to experience varied disciplines, allowing them to select the field most compatible with their interests and goals.
  • At Columbia-Bassett we have conjoined the AAMC four-year approach to career selection (http://www.aamc.org/students/cim/start.htm) with our own special approach to helping students develop insight into their aptitudes and skills.
  • Students have a Major Mentor, longitudinal contact with preceptors, and sessions during which students challenge each other and faculty will challenge students to contemplate their career choice.
  • The ability to understand health care environments – the SLIM Curriculum helps students recognize a positive career environment when they are presented with one.
