Career Starter Career Coaching Course
The Free Career Starter Course has closed for now.
We were finding too many doctors who are not Interns or Medical Students were enrolling and abusing this free course option.
If you have already enrolled in this course you will still have access.
We hope to find a way to re-open this course for medical students and Interns in the future.
An Introduction to the Course. Don't forget to post something about yourself in the comments section.
