EM Stud Podcast – Application Yellow Flags

emstudcdembanner

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 (@sameermd1) and Jonathan Bronner (@Bronski_EM) from the University of Kentucky. For more information about their residency program, visit wildcatem.com.

Only a few more days until ERAS application submissions begin! Make sure you review everything with a fine-tooth comb, cross all your i’s and dot all your t’s dot all your i’s and cross all your t’s. Your application needs to be accurate, complete, and professional. After all, it’s a representation of YOU!

For an overview of the process as well as some tips for success, we turned to Dr. Chris Woleben, Associate Dean for Student Affairs at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in Richmond, VA.
