EM Stud Podcast – AAMC Standardized Video Interview… Interview (Part 2)


Attention all EM applicants for the 2018 Match!

Beginning this year, all students applying to Emergency Medicine will need to complete an online video interview as part of the ERAS application. This was actually piloted last year, and it is now being rolled out to a broader group of applicants.

For more information about the SVI, we invited back Dr. Atul Grover, Executive VP of the AAMC.

Lots more information available on the AAMC Standardized Video Interview website, including a must-read, The AAMC Standardized Video Interview: Essentials for the ERAS® 2018 Season.

Open Spots for Away Rotations

The struggle to find open spots for away rotations in Emergency Medicine is becoming increasingly difficult year after year. To help facillitate matching students with open spots, we’ve created this list. Program and clerkship directors & coordinators, check the CORD and CDEM list serve for a link for access to update this list. Students, please be patient as we work to populate this list.

Remember that you’ll still have to apply for the open spots listed below. They are not guaranteed.  They may also fill quickly.

This year, Dr. Emily Fisher is running the database. Clerkship Directors, you should have received an email with a link to access the spreadsheet to make changes.

Thanks, CDEM.
