Careers in Medicine: Succeed

Once you’ve decided which specialty you want to pursue, Careers in Medicine offers various resources to help you match with the perfect residency for your career goals.

Professional Development Workshops

Workshops led by Vanderbilt faculty will help you craft your personal statement, perfect your CV, and prepare for residency interviews. Our goal is to guide you in compiling a residency application that showcases your particular passions, skills, and experience.

Texas STAR

Vanderbilt offers access to the Texas Seeking Transparency in Application to Residency (STAR) online tool, which provides residency match data from more than one hundred medical schools nationwide. You’ll be able to see where students with similar scores and experiences to you have matched—key information for helping you choose where to apply for residency.

Residency Advising

Throughout your fourth year, your college mentor, portfolio coach, and faculty adviser will be continually available to answer your questions and provide additional resources to prepare you for the road to residency.
