Careers in Medicine (CiM) is a comprehensive career planning program from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) that provides medical students with tools, knowledge, data and training about what specialties would be the right fit for them and how to apply to those residency programs. CiM provides medical students with assessments to match them with medical specialties that align with their interests, values, skills and personalities. CiM also provides medical students with information about the types of medical specialties, how to choose their specialties and how to prepare for residency. Access to CiM is usually provided by medical schools.
