Each year, more than 15,000 U.S. medical students—along with more than 18,000 graduates of foreign medical schools and schools of osteopathic medicine—take part in the National Residency Matching Program, vying for a small number of positions in the United States. In this keenly competitive environment, they seek every advantage they can get. Based on more than two decades of experience preparing candidates for residency programs, John Canady has developed a concise practical guide to making one’s way through the maze of residency applications and interviews.
Guiding residency applicants past the pitfalls in all aspects of the process, 101 Tips to Getting the Residency You Want includes sections on tried-and-true methods for senior year planning, the importance of networking, tips for interviewing, practical advice for carefree travel, and guidelines for follow-up to out-of-town rotations and interviews. This guide covers the do’s and don’ts that will maximize each applicant’s chances and exposes the common blunders that can ruin an application in spite of the best grades and test scores.
John Canady is a professor in the departments of Surgery and Otolaryngology at the University of Iowa, where he is also the faculty advisor for the Iowa Surgical Interest Society. He is president-elect of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
“Well written, well divided, and at an ideal length, this very affordable, compact guide is ideal. Dr. Canady has put together an accurate summary of helpful tips to focus on, not only during the actual interview season but also while scheduling fourth-year electives.”—Sally Leitch, M.D., University of Minnesota Medical Center
This is a great little book filled with very practical tips about getting the residency you want and how to set yourself apart from the competition. This is especially helpful if you are not at the top of your medical school class or if you are applying for a residency in one of the competitive specialties. If you want to know how to fully prepare for your interview trips, avoid awkward silences during your interview, and be the applicant the faculty remembers at the end of the day, then you need to read this book.
Since most of the medical students I interact with do an extensive amount of traveling to get to their sub internships or residency interviews the travel tips in the book would be very helpful and should save time, money and aggravation. Learning some lessons from someone who travels extensively will help you arrive as rested and composed as possible so you can perform your best.
