    Second look?

    Advertisements



    What is the typical day like when you go for second look? Do you round with the team? If so, then I guess you are expected to contribute to the teaching rounds by asking questions or answering them rather than just being an observer? What is typical dress code?

    Second Look

    Yes, you will round and spend the day with the team or an attending, residents etc....

    You will be pimped .... I was.....

    Just do your best and be yourself. Show that you are a team player.

    Dress code..... wear a shirt and tie, women wear something not low cut and conservative. Wear comfortable shoes.....

    Does the residency program ask you back for the second time or do you call and ask to go back a second time if you are interested. Is it more normal just to send a thank you after your first interview and hope forthe best on theMatch without being pushy?
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.
    "60 years young" another 60 to go if my doctor sons keep me alive with free prescriptions!!

    That's a great question. I'm sure it depends upon which specialty you're going into. My husband is applying for Pathology programs right now and he's been told to stay in contact with several programs, but never been asked back for a second look. I'd also be interested in hearing more about this...
