Abstract

Deciding on a specialty may be one of the most daunting parts of medical school. Accordingly, it is important for medical students to make informed decisions regarding their choice of specialty. To do so, they should start planning early by contemplating possible career choices during the first 2 years of medical school, followed by properly designing their third- and fourth-year schedules. This article provides guidance and advice to medical students on how to schedule their clinical clerkships in order to optimize their ability to decide on a field of medicine to study and, ideally, to prepare them for a career in emergency medicine.
