An away/audition rotation SLOE is NOT the same as an “alternative” SLOE, such as from an EM elective or a narrative letter of rec

Emily Prince-Ralby

will specific core clerkship narratives be looked at with more weight for this next cycle?
Enrique Antonio Rodriguez-Fhon
54:39
my home institution offers a 4 week EM elective at our satellite campus, which is not a hospital with an EM residency, however, it is a teaching site for a different program where residents from that program spent 2-3 months at. is this elective considered an alternative SLOE?
Montane Silverman
55:03
If letters aren’t coming from an EM provider, are their certain specialties that we should prioritize?
Helen Lu
55:17
If we get 1 traditional SLOE, how many alternative SLOEs/non-EM letters of rec should we aim for?
Hannah Hughes
55:48
^As many as you want. You don’t have to end up using them all. Quality is better than quantity though.
Helen Lu
56:12
Thank you!
David Wilson
57:09
There’s a good FAQ on SLOEs for med students here: https://www.cordem.org/resources/residency-management/sloe/ (not from the time of COVID) There’s also a separate form from non EM-residency faculty.
L Tamara Wilson
58:05
Can someone (EMRA?, CORD?, ??) update a website with all these different SLOEs definitions (Non-EM SLOE vs Non-Clinical SLOE vs standard LOC)
Marlee Thomas
58:28
I have to share the link for this tweet. A bot wrote a residency application personal statement: https://twitter.com/paulberglmd/status/1070362210776612864?s=21

If we have multiple SLOE's already set up, should we keep them if they remain available? I'm sorry still confused about being aggressive with SLOE's during this corona situation
Hannah Hughes
01:00:24
Round of applause!!!!!!!
Mike Middleton
01:00:50
What is your advice for tailoring and showing interest to a program that is a different category from our home institution (since it’s less likely that I’ll be doing an away there)? For instance I’m interested in university affiliated and community programs. My institution is very academic.
Joe Colucci
01:00:53
bridge to EM curriculum is excellent
Jazmyn Shaw
01:00:58

Katrina Anne Muraglia
01:09:00
I can’t describe how much I appreciate these sentiments right now! It’s hard to feel like a person and not a number in med school sometimes. Makes me feel like I chose the right career already!
Apre Gleaves
01:09:37
This is so uplifting!

01:09:51
Thank you!!
Courtney Elizabeth Hibbs
01:11:31
That is amazing, being a team player in EM is huge and big part of what makes this field amazing
Jazmyn Shaw
01:11:59
Yes ^^^. It’s what makes it the best specialty around!
Courtney Elizabeth Hibbs

Erron Fritchman
01:12:47
upvote that!
Hannah Hughes
01:13:06
Neverrrrrrrrr thought I’d leave the beautiful state of California for Cincinnati. Didn’t do an “away” rotation. Interviews can definitely highlight factors that you never would have thought of. You’ll find your people, I promise.
Ruthy Mamo

Hannah Hughes

Wholistic approach to applications will require more time…. and more patient from applicants.
Hannah Hughes
01:15:30
Advocate for your Dean’s to make it clear in your MSPE what the limitations are

Vian Zada
01:17:55
If we were able to apply to aways (but not go), do programs ever consider that as a sign of interest? Thank you so much!
Hannah Hughes
01:18:14
^TOTALLY
Joe Colucci
01:19:10
any consideration of application caps to allow programs more opportunity for hig-quality holistic review?
abdozeinoun
01:21:11
How many programs would you suggest IMGs apply for?
Jazmyn Shaw
01:23:06
There is some great information in the EMRA/CORD Student Advising Guide in Ch. 8 about competitiveness and # of applications students should apply to. https://www.emra.org/books/msadvisingguide/apply-smarter-not-harder/
Courtney Elizabeth Hibbs
01:23:28
What a special story, thank you for sharing
Hannah Hughes
01:24:07
While advice isn’t universal and there is no clear cut number for applications, the NRMP data is pretty good at looking at number of applications —> match rate: http://www.nrmp.org/main-residency-match-data/

How will PDs and coordinators see students that have volunteered in hospitals for COVID relief and those that did not?
Hannah Hughes
01:29:17
^Put it in your ERAS
Tyler Nghiem
01:29:57
As in, will those that volunteered be weighed more heavily?
A Chittenden
01:32:38

That's an amazing name!!!
Tijana Marjanovic
01:33:06
What’s the appropriate timeline to cancel an away? Or would an away intuition be okay with letting us come another month than when scheduled? Example: My institution might not let us back until late June, where we have to finish the rest of 3rd year core clerkship which might run into an away already scheduled.
Azeem Rathore
01:33:06
