How To Get A Medical Residency Interview

Every year after residency rank order lists have been submitted, and before match day, program directors from all residency specialties are sent a survey “to shed light on the factors that program directors use to (1) select applicants to interview and (2) rank applicants for the match.”*

In 2014, program directors listed these factors as their top considerations when inviting residency applicants for an interview.

1) USMLE Step 1/COMLEX Level 1 score

2) Letters of recommendation in the specialty

3) Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE/Dean’s Letter)

4) USMLE Step 2 CK/COMLEX Level 2 CE score

5) Personal Statement

8) Gaps in medical education

9) Honors in clinical clerkships

10) Perceived commitment to specialty

Medical School Personal Statement: A Few Guidelines To Follow

How should you start your medical school personal statement? You hear conflicting advice. Some tell you not to open with a story. Others tell you to always begin with a story. Regardless of the advice you receive, be sure to do three things: 

1) Be true to yourself. Everyone will have an opinion regarding what you should and should not write. Follow your own instincts. Your personal statement should be a reflection of you, and only you. 

2) Start your personal statement with something catchy. Whether you choose to write about a pivotal experience in your life that inspired your interest in medicine, or a personal experience that is very meaningful, be sure to capture your reader’s interest at the outset. 

3) Don’t rush your work. AMCAS, TMDSAS, and AACOMAS have “opened.” Don’t panic. It is still very early. Composing great documents takes time and you don’t want your writing and ideas to be sloppy and underdeveloped. Your application materials must be authentic, but sometimes a little inspiration helps.
