I started medical school as a non-traditional URM student. I worked for several years prior to medical school. How much of my prior work experience is applicable to ERAS.
What is the best way to figure out which residency programs share your values?
Can Dr. Collado speak to Denver Health's view on DO students? I am a student at Rocky Vista University - CO and I know many students from my school would like to try to stay in the state for residency, but the historical reluctance to DOs is concerning.
Great point Jeremy. EM is becoming more male and more white, despite our medical students being the opposite. Pipeline programs are super important.
Thank You Dr.McCabe!

I was told by my school to take out my bartending work experience but its important part of life. Anything that is important to who you are should be on your application.
Denver Health, in addition to many programs, absolutely considers DOs. We have multiple DO attendings and residents at our program. Doing well in med school and on your EM rotations are your best bet!
Sorry joined semi-late... Have you all talked about away rotations? I ask because for those of us with who were relying on SLOEs/away rotations to boost our application in light of test scores
If there isn't a hard cut off but just an average of the step 1 scores of applicants, should we still apply there if we don't meet that average?
Yes Sanjana! You should go for it. It's an average for a reason, and as I mentioned programs look at many other aspects of the application.
Totally agree with Jess re: averages
How is research and publications looked at in our overall application if we wanted to pursue emergency medicine at larger academic institutions?
Here is the link for the EMRA match page: https://webapps.emra.org/utils/spa/match#/search/map
Is there anything unique or specific that underrepresented first and second years can be doing during our preclinical years to make us better applicants?
(will look at the IMG video but until then) As someone who has trained in another country years ago, but has been working as faculty in a US academic institution (simulation) Is it possible to apply without an SLOE as I cannot do a rotation. Perhaps a substitute?

Quality not quantity
Yes Jess! Don’t focus on quantity alone.
What are the general practices of accepting and potentially declining away rotation invitations. I know this upcoming summer will be different for us in terms of the amount of aways we should be accepting.
Thank you, all!!
Yes for mentorship!!! Great point!
There are some general questions about the process of applying to EM in general, not related to diversity and inclusion in EM. For the sake of time, we will not be able to address these questions. Butt I encourage you to take a look at the current Student Advising Guide. https://www.emra.org/books/msadvisingguide/msag/?fbclid=IwAR24T8dcfYu6YydWdpns5eX4FSRlME9nn0M7e4gNQr54mHUFhh5HL-Qp7OY
But I encourage** thank you everyone!
RE: Mentorship, take a listen to this Hangout: https://vimeo.com/315105439
Since step 1 is now going to pass fail, how will things change in regards to how programs decide who to interview, rank, etc.
just curious, has there been any analysis on bias in SLOEs? Do URM students receive the same or different scores than non-URM students? Do residency directors consider possible biases when reviewing SLOEs?
Considering it will be a bit harder to compare students without that Step 1 score.
Hello. What can a US-International medical graduate do to get EM rotations? I know generally speaking, EM residency programs usually only allow 4th year students to rotate, but is there any way around that, legally, because SLOEs are so essential.
If anyone has specific questions that they were not comfortable broadcasting that relates to this topic of diversity and inclusion for underrepresented students, please feel free to email: firstname.lastname@example.org
