Finding a Home Away From Home: Challenges of the Match Faced by URM Applicants and Those Without an Affiliate EM Program

Presentation Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted much of the usual residency application process. Students across the nation have had to adapt to limitations in SLOE availability, an abbreviated clinical experience, and fewer opportunities for exposure to the field of Emergency Medicine. While official recommendations are outlined in our joint statement on the 2020 application process, students have variable opportunities available to them. URM students and those at institutions without an affiliate EM program, however, have less access to both home and away EM rotations, limiting their facetime with residency leadership to nearby programs able to accommodate “orphan” medical students. Join us alongside PDs from across the country in our live webinar as we discuss these challenges, and how to navigate them as a student in this unique application cycle.
