Rave

As an attending physician, you are friends with nurses and residents on social media.

One day, you are browsing through your social media page. You came across a photo of a student – a candidate applying to your program in fact – scantily clad, inebriated, dancing in a rave. The comments followed agreed on how wild he/she had partied and drank that night.

You are on the selection committee. Should this information be part of the assessment of the candidate?

 Please explain your decision in the comments section.
