What to know before you start Residency

In this episode of The Road to Residency, I talk to Brenda Thompson about a side of residency we may not always think about as students, especially international medical graduates. Join us for this insightful perspective from someone who has held multiple roles spanning 10 years in Graduate Medical Education.

Brenda has a new book coming out called Graduate Medical Education [re]Think [re]Claim [re]Design [re]Create A Memoir and Call to Action. The book will be available by the end of the month! A link will be dropped below when it has arrived or look out for it on Amazon Kindle. Till then you can reach out to either one of us with any questions.

In this Episode we discuss topics such as:

  1. What are programs looking for in a resident?
  2. What are some barriers of success for residents and what can you do to avoid those barriers?
  3. What are the ACGME 6 competencies and the milestones that need to be met in residency?
  4. What role does professionalism play and how can you assure you keep a professional demeanor?
  5. How can we protect ourselves from burn out?
  6. And more!

Brenda and I are always available for any questions regarding the Match and Residency. Feel free to reach out to us below!
