This week, The Doctor Anonymous Show is happy to welcome Colin from the blog called "From Medskool: Not So Witty Commentary on Health Care." I invite you to check out his "Lead Post" at the top of the blog page called "Interviewing For Residency." We'll be talking about the residency interview process on the show. Here is the beginning passage of the post:
My last residency interview was a couple of days ago. I’ve rarely been so relieved to be done with something. Walking out after hours of being holed up in a hospital conference room and of talking with faculty and researchers, I felt a real big weight leave my shoulders. Interviewing for any job can be stressful. Residency interviews may be on a whole different level.Also, if you didn't already know, Colin is one of the "keepers" of the wildly popular and industry defining blog carnival called Grand Rounds. I'm curious about how Colin got that gig. So, we'll be talking about all of this stuff, and a whole lot more. You can even join us in the live chat room, call into the show, and even see my shining face on the webcam!
Residency has been caricatured by shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Scrubs. It is that time in a physicians life after they have graduated after they have graduated from medical school and gotten that M.D. after their name; when they are getting training in a medical specialty.
For first time Blog Talk Radio listeners:
*Although it is not required to listen to the show, I encourage you to register on the BlogTalkRadio site prior to the show. I think it will make the process easier.
*To get to my show site, click here. As show time gets closer, keep hitting "refresh" on your browser until you see the "Play/Chat" button. Then, of course, press the "Play/Chat" button.
*You can also participate in the live chat room before, during, and after the show. Look for the green "Chat Now" button. If you are registered with the BTR site, your registered name and picture will appear in the chat room.
*You can also call into the show. The number is on my show site. If you have a headset microphone, you can "call" into the show by looking for the "Click To Talk" button at the top of the chat box to try out the BTR VoIP option. Hope these tips are helpful!
