Specialty Advice for Residency Planning

Specialty Advisors are available to support you as you explore your interest areas!

Some departments regularly have their specialty advisors and teams host group sessions called specialty information nights to help you plan for fourth year and residency applications, as well as answer your questions. Check your email for details of each night. Here are the 2018-2019 sessions:

  • IM - "Applying for IM Residency?" - 2/15/18
  • Pediatrics - "Workshop #1: 4th Year Scheduling, AIs, and Away Rotations" - 2/15/18
  • OBGYN - "Applying into an OBGYN Residency: Planning it out" - 2/20/18
  • Pediatrics - "Workshop #2: ERAS applications, LORs, and Personal Statements" - 5/29/18
