Top Ten Tips for Fourth Year Students While on Auditions
By Neha Mahajan, OMS-III
PULSE Student Editor
The recommendations below have been collected from current residents.
- When you do not know the answer to a question, offer to look up the answer instead of saying “I do not know.”
- When asked whether you have any questions, try your best to come up with a relevant question to show your interest.
- Be aware that you are constantly being watched by residents and other faculty at rotation sites.
- In the scenario that you have started off on the wrong foot with an attending or a resident, address the issue early on.
- Research the program where you are rotating so you can ask relevant questions.
- Attempt to introduce yourself to the program director while on rotation so you put a face to your name.
- After completing a rotation at a site you are interested in, ask the preceptor whether he/she would feel comfortable writing a Letter of Recommendation or a Letter of Support for you.
- Show up on time, if not slightly early for your rotations.
- Dress professionally.
- Have a positive attitude and avoid complaining.
