Career Advising at RVU offers a holistic approach towards helping students prepare for fulfilling careers in Osteopathic Medicine. We aid students in the process of developing a comprehensive and individualized professional identity through the Whole DO program, where students learn to document and reflect of curricular and co-curricular activities that support them to:
- Expand a growth mindset
- Explore medical specialties
- Advance their personal and professional development
- Participate in leadership opportunities
- Develop a comprehensive professional identity as a flourishing DO (The Whole DO)
We believe that this complex development often takes place in the context of tasks, (e.g. writing CVs personal statements, noteworthy characteristics) and skills (collaboration, negotiation, cultural competencies). Regardless of the activities students participate in, our career advising program assists students to identify and make the necessary connection between what they do and who they are.
