Hot off the press! The EMRA and CORD Student Advising Guide: An Evidence-Based Approach to Matching in EM has just been released. Here to give us some of the details are Drs. Emily Hillman and Alexis Pelletier-Bui.
Sifting through hundreds of residency programs and deciding which ones to apply to can be a long, painful process. If only there was an easily searchable and filterable directory of EM residency programs, free from commercial bias, that could be accessed from anywhere… oh wait there is!
EMRA Match is a beautifully designed, easy to use, powerful tool that lets you compare programs and find out what really matters to you. For more details, check out our interview below with Dr. Zach Jarou and Dr. Adam Kellogg from the EMRA Match Task Force.
Some EM Studs have written in and asked, am I competitive? In this episode, we respond along with some help from Dr. Kevin King, CD at UT Health San Antonio and member of the CDEM/CORD Student Advising Task Force.
For more information from the CORD SATF on how to apply to EM, check out our previous post here.
A new M4 year is just around the corner! To help you get ready, we wanted to give you a broad overview of the coming school year, starting with things to be working on now for your residency application. More details on specific topics to come, but for now, enjoy the 10,000 foot view…
Also check out these great resources from the CORD Student Advising Task Force.
Do you have a Step 1 or Step 2 score that’s below your peers? Or perhaps you didn’t do so well on a 3rd year rotation, or had to take some time off in the middle of medical school? We consider these things yellow flags–not absolute deal breakers, but parts of your application that may stick out and require some explanation during an interview.
To gather some insight on how best to address these yellow flags, we’re joined by Drs. Sameer Desai (@) and Jonathan Bronner (@) from the University of Kentucky. For more information about their residency program, visit wildcatem.com.
