Career Services Overview

Welcome to the Stanford School of Medicine Career Center

The School of Medicine Career Center provides critical support for the exploration of career options, development of professional skill sets, and connections to opportunities. We house career and professional development resources via in-house and online libraries. Further, as career counselors, we provide insight into the career development and job search process one on one. Finally, we partner with alumni, faculty, and experts in myriad fields around discussion groups and curricular efforts. This curriculum, aimed at increasing awareness of and marketability for these various options, supplements an already strong scientific foundation with innovative and practical skill sets. Through all of our services and offerings, we empower our trainees in both defining their individual passions and short and long term goals as well as those impacting other organizations, cultures, and communities regardless of external expectations of career choice.

Career Transitions Workshop: Negotiation — NEW!

Monday, June 27, 2016, 5:30pm-6:30 pm
LKSC 203/204

Negotiating your new job offer is optional, but, if you don't negotiate and your friend does, s/he could be making $100K or more than you 30 years later. This workshop helps you overcome the myths and fears surrounding negotiation so that you are stronger and more confident in the process.

You will learn tools and resources to aid in examining a job offer, strategies to define which components are negotiable, ways to reframe the negotiation process, action steps to assist you in negotiating a job offer, and SoMCC resources to assist you during your job search.
