With interview season now in full swing this winter season, we gathered a few more of our favorite program directors to discuss the hot topic of making the post-interview communication etiquette. We feature Dr. Jim Colletti (Mayo Clinic), Dr. Jessica Smith (Brown University), and Dr. Jeff Schneider (Boston Medical Center). Thanks again to Dr. Mike Gisondi (Northwestern) for spearheading this innovative and helpful EM Match Advice series for medical students.
