    Mastering the Residency Interview

    Mastering the Residency Interview

    On this episode, we are joined by PGY1 resident, Dr. Kristen Ingold, PharmD. Kristen came on the show to discuss her series of training videos designed to help students prep for their residency/fellowship interviews. She virtually interviewed 20-25 residency program directors (RPDs) from across the United States. Each RPD was asked the same list of questions. After collecting all of the interview videos, she took each video and spliced them together to form topic-specific videos that range from 5-15 minutes in duration. Topics include items that RPDs look for on a student’s curriculum vitae, GPA, choice of electives, resident characteristics, appropriate follow-up, social media, and more. There are 40 videos total (8 topics for 5 different regions of the United States). The best part about this video series is the price.....COMPLETELY FREE! 
    The free video series can be found on the SIUePharmacy YouTube page at the link below:

SBRlife ,

Joe Rogan?

Mike sounds like Joe Rogan. I wish I cared enough to look him up to see if he looks like Joe Rogan but I don’t. Therefore, I spend every episode wondering if I’m listening to someone who looks like Joe Rogan instead of focusing on the content.

Rx_Justin_843 ,

Informative podcast!

Great podcast to listen to.

Thefieldsofdawn ,

Only 2 episodes in…

But I’m really excited I found these guys! I’m an auditory learner and remember things SO much more when they are delivered in this way! Their sense of humor also makes me laugh out loud while sitting at red lights like a crazy lady. Keep it up!
