EP23. Applying to EM with Dr. Adam Kellogg

At the CORD Academic Assembly earlier this year, we caught up with Dr. Adam Kellogg, recent chair of the CORD EM Student Advising Task Force (SATF) and author on the amazing EM Advisor blog. He was kind enough to share his insights on what makes a competitive applicant, how to choose programs, and other topics related to applying to EM.

The SATF resources mentioned in this episode can be found in one of our earlier blog posts here.
