Get Ready For Residency!
We are excited to welcome you to Get Ready for Residency! This course grew from an idea to build a capstone experience for medical students, one that will review and integrate the varied parts of medical school. Medical school is an experience that often focuses on building a vast array of knowledge in the developing physician. However, residency requires you to put that knowledge into practice to diagnose and treat patients. It can be a stressful and complicated transition and this course will help you begin that transition before you are on the front lines caring for patients by yourself.
We have developed this course to be learner-centered, meaning we hope that every session will be highly relevant to your future practice. Our hope is that every hour will provide insights into how to approach common scenarios you can expect to encounter as a resident. We want to provide you with the tools to be able to stay calm and level-headed even during the most hectic of clinical experiences. Not only do we aim to make this course high yield, but we also look to make it as engaging as possible. By using various teaching modalities, such as simulation, standardized patients, role-playing, case discussion, journal club, and didactics, we hope to engage each student and provide the maximum educational experience. Our overall goal is to ensure that you feel prepared to take on any clinical scenario you might find yourself in on your first day of intern year!
