Military Residency Wiki
It’s hard to find information about the military residency programs. As an applicant, how are you supposed to decide where to rotate, where to interview, and where to rank? The most helpful information to me on the interview trail was the “gouge” from other applicants – what’s the vibe at each program, what are its priorities, what sets it apart? Which program is the most family-friendly? Which is the most laid-back? Which is the most formal? Which is the biggest? Which does the most research? By the time you know the answers to those questions, it’s the end of the interview season, and all of the knowledge that you have gained just gets tucked away in the back of your brain, and another year’s worth of students has the same experience.
This wiki exists to give applicants a way to share their experiences with other applicants, and to pass on our knowledge about the programs to other applicants that come after us.
I’m starting in my own specialty (OB/GYN) and hoping that other military residents, applicants, and rotating students will help me out by adding information.
If you have any experiences with any of the military residency programs, in any specialty, please comment or send me a message using the contact form in the bottom right corner of the page so I can add your thoughts the page. The more people contribute their experiences, the more helpful this will be.
I am counting on applicants (and current residents) to help me keep this wiki up to date. I don’t have a whole lot of interactions with people outside of my own program, so the only way for the wiki to continue to reflect reality is for people who ARE interacting with the program to send me updates. So, pretty please, fill me in as things change so I can pass that information on!
I’m still VERY new to the whole wiki thing and trying to figure out how it works, so please bear with me as I negotiate the technical aspects, and if you are a tech whiz and want to help me out, I certainly won’t stop you!
Happy reading, and good luck in the match!
