Careers in Medicine (CiM) Resources
While much about the 2021 residency application cycle is different this year, some tactics for applying smart are the same and even more important.
Identify the programs that best fit you with these CiM resources that can help you:
  • Use your school alumni and other networks to learn more about different training paths and the opportunities they lead to in your desired specialty
  • Clarify and prioritize what you want from your residency training so you can identify the programs that will support these goals
  • Research residency programs, even with limited access to programs in-person
  • Determine how many and which programs to apply
Create a strong application with these CiM articles that can help you:
  • Craft a personal statement that helps you stand out from the pack
  • Collect letters of recommendation that convey each writer’s experience working with you as well as their strong support for your candidacy
  • Polish your digital image
