    Things to help residency application

    Advertisements



    Im a third year medical student, and ive been eyeing a particular program, I was wondering if there's anything I could do now that might increase my chances of matching to that partiular program. Would contacting them now regarding info,( still haven't sat for step 2) be a little premature ? Thanks

    Things to do

    1) Do a rotation there
    2) ask for a LOR from a professor there
    3) Get to know people in charge there and tell them you're interested (while doing #1 as above)
    4) Do well on step 2

    That should be it

    hello,

    I wanted to know if publications help for competitive residencies. I have a second author paper in JEM. Do you think residency programs would look at this highly?
