2018-06-19T09:56:05+00:00

A new academic year is upon us! Across the country, emergency medicine interns are orienting to their new hospitals and preparing for their first day as “doctor.” But before we look forward, what lessons can we learn from 2018 EM Residency Match cycle? In this EM Match Advice series installment, Dr. Michael Gisondi (Stanford), Dr. Michelle Lin (UCSF), and an esteemed panel of program directors discuss how competitive EM was in 2018, the standardized video interview, and the number of programs an average applicant should apply to this year. Bonus: we introduce the Lin-Gisondi correction factor, a (mostly facetious) tool to help applicants weigh the advice of their mentors!
