Saturday, September 14, 2013
On this day
, the 258th day of the calendar year... babies are born, children have soccer games, the more precocious may be planning their Halloween costumes.
Sept 15 is just another day. And it's the day on which residency applicants can begin transmitting their applications to ACGME accredited residency programs
and the day upon which said programs can download applications. Has FREIDA
been your FRIEND?
okay to look over your pediatric residency application one more time before submitting.
Did your partner/best friend/mother/trusted advisor read your application?
Does it say what you want it to say and convey something meaningful about who you are and who you will be? How personal is that personal statement
Did you read these FAQ's from ERAS?
Did you know you can preview
what your application will look like to program directors receiving it? Join the people for the reduction of typos.
If you have been very very tired lately, get a good night's sleep, re-read and edit your application tomorrow, then
submit (promptly). And make it a strong one!
