Resident News to Use
October 2019
A Note from the Editor - Dr. Nicole DeLauro

Welcome Autumn! I hope that the year thus far has been fulfilling and fun. Residency is a great time to take advantage and learn so many new treatments, procedures and techniques. 

Be sure to check out our "Clinical Skills" feature written by Dr. Jonathan Rouse. Regarding ABPM exams, applications for the next qualification and certification exam cycle will be available in November. Don't forget, the deadline to register for the In-training exam is November 15th. Be sure to apply. 

ABPM is always working to make your resident experience better and would love to come and lecture to your program. Encourage your directors to request a speaker from our Speaker's Bureau. It is easily accessible from the ABPM website. Lastly, congratulations to the Residency Rumble winners from the Chicago conference!

Clinical Presentation Skills:  How to be a Standout Applicant for Employment  Stavosky
By: Jonathan D. Rouse, DPM

PGY-3 Year...Freedom at Last! Right? 
Your phone goes off in the middle of the night. You pop up immediately because you are a PGY-3 and you're used to this lifestyle now. You're just happy it's not a pager going off...until you see it's your junior PGY-1 calling. You pick up and they ask you how to order a medication in the EMR. Of course you're happy to help because you are nice and empathetic. You get it; you were once a PGY-1 trying to figure out how the heck to input orders in the system.

Your PGY-3 year starts, and the feeling of being near the top of the food chain is ephemeral as you realize that you soon need to find a real job while still completing your training. While nothing can replace great training and confidence, there are some preparations that can aid you in standing out against other applicants.  Read more
