Informational Series: Postgraduate Physician Scientist Training Opportunities

The AAMC subcommittee on Physician Scientists Postgraduate Training announces a virtual discussion series for students interested in applying to research residencies. These 90min sessions are exclusively for students to get more information about:

  • research residencies generally
  • individual specialties
  • individual programs
  • the application process,
  • and to directly ask their questions to PSTP directors, trainees and fellows who are in, or have recently completed research residencies.

Our next session, Wed., Nov. 17, 8-9:30 pm Eastern, will be a conversation on: Preparing early: What to think about in your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Years of Med School Years.

This session will be of special interest to MD students who are considering a research residency.

Recordings will be available after each session here for those who do not register for the webinar. Contact with questions.

Career Advising Student Advisory Board – Tip of the Month

As you know, 3rd year is busy! Something you can do to thank your future-self is to make/edit your CV whenever you have some down time (e.g., month off, “chill” rotation). Having a solid CV is necessary for away rotation applications in the Spring and you’ll use this info almost word-for-word in ERAS when you’re applying. Check out our CV page for videos and templates.

Written by Career Advising Student Advisory Board member, Shanelle Briggs and reviewed by a second BIPOC Board member, L’Oreal Kennedy.
