Internship and Residency
BACKGROUND: The interview process for applying to general surgery residency is burdened by a high volume of applicants, resulting in unprofessional behavior by both applicants and programs. Sharing more information regarding interview scheduling with applicants may limit 4th year medical student educational disruptions, minimized late cancellations to interview, and improve overall satisfaction with the process.
