Careers in Healthcare has developed the Current Application Support Series (CASS) to provide tailored, equitable support in the areas where each applicant feels they need it most. Current applicants may utilize as many or as few of these resources as they wish, based on your personal and scheduling needs. We're here to promote your success, your way.
Though CASS participants are not required to attend any workshops, we strongly encourage you to participate in the Foundational Workshops to get a solid handle on your application strategy. These include:
- Evaluating Your Candidacy

SPECIALIZED ADVISING APPOINTMENTS
