Objective: The Covid Pandemic created a massive disruption of an already problematic residency application process with resulting altered application timelines, prolonged interview seasons and need for new processes such as virtual interviewing. These changes may further limit holistic reviews of students’ applications in the face of skyrocketing application numbers, and increase dependence on traditional markers such as USMLE scores. Faculty advisors will need to address students’ concerns and insecurities with data driven counseling, during these changing times related to the pandemic, and beyond.
The AMA Reimaging Residency grant for the APGO CREOG Right Resident, Right Program, Ready Day One (RRR) project, has described steps to address concerns with these residency application processes. With the onset of the pandemic, there was a pressing need to accelerate the project timelines. This interactive workshop will review resources and data available through the AAMC, AMA, NRMP and the APGO RRR grant that will enable faculty to empower students to make data informed decisions.
