Congratulations!  Welcome to the third year of medical school, where you will begin to truly learn medicine by application of your knowledge to patients.  

Moving from MS-2 to the MS-3 year comes with many changes, and we hope our class page will prepare you and help you adjust to the new schedule, expectations, and way of learning.  The information on this page and the other pages has been compiled by previous third year classes to help ease you through this time of transition.  Good luck!  

If you need academic or career advice, or have a question and don't know who to ask, the staff in Medical Student Services is here to help!
