I'm going to try something new this year: a weekly tip on applying to residency,…
Residency Application Tip of the Week: September 24th
Tip #7: Don’t be afraid to reach out
Programs want residents who want to go to their program. If you haven’t heard back from a program that you are really interested in, give them a call. I got two interview invitations by calling or emailing programs and letting them know that I was really interested in their program. It didn’t work everywhere, of course – there was a third program that I called but that didn’t offer me an interview in the end. But it’s worth letting programs know if you really want to be there, and why.
