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.
In this episode, Joshua Sawyer, a medical student at the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine and the AAEM/RSA Medical Student Council Southern Regional Representative, interviews Christine Babcock, MD MSc FAAEM, Program Director at the University of Chicago, David Snow, MD MSc FACEP, Program Director for the Loyola Emergency Medicine Residency Program, Charles A. Khoury MD MSHA FAAEM FACEP, Residency Program Director at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and Melissa Platt, MD FAAEM FACEP, Program Director at the University of Louisville – Department of Emergency Medicine, on applying EM during COVID-19.
