Effective Student Advising Series

Welcome to the new APGO Effective Student Advising Series! Advising medical students on a career in women’s health can be one of the most fulfilling things that a medical educator does. However, it can also be a daunting task, and many physicians find themselves in the role of faculty advisor without any formal background or training in advising. The APGO Effective Student Advising Series pamphlets are intended to educate medical educators and learners about best practices for advising medical students on a career in women’s health.

The APGO Effective Student Advising Series pamphlets were written by the APGO Undergraduate Medical Education Committee (UMEC). They are formatted as easy-to-read PDFs and are available for free downloading for APGO members.
