Specialties - AAMC

We think the best source to view specialty information is on the AAMC CiM site, so rather than importing it here it is best to view it from their site since it is dynamic information.

You will first have to register to sign in to Careers in Medicine the first time. To do this you will need your AAMC user name and password. This is the same information you have used for other AAMC applications (e.g. AMCAS, MCAT, etc) that use the AAMC Login. If you have forgotten your AAMC username and password you can easily retrieve it by hitting "forgot my username or password" on the log in page. Please take the 2 minutes it will take you to register so you can use the valuable resource.
