Ace ECGs on Clerkship. on 5/30/12

Ace your ECGs on the wards!

Come to our clerkship-oriented ECG session, co-presented with IMIG. Augment the systematic reading approach with pattern recognition; learn how to present with style, what to include and what to leave out for both EM and IM.

Dinner and mingling + 45 minute lecture by Cardiology Attending and recent EP Fellow Dr. Marco Perez + 45 minute group-practice led by EM and IM residents.

Invite with RSVP will be sent out early May.

Applying to Residency Workshop on 8/02/11

We will provide dinner and Drs. Harter (Stanford EMed Residency Director), Laleh Gharahbaghian, and Alice Chiao plus Stanford EMed residents Sundeep Bhat and Misha Kassel will be there to answer all questions about residency applications!

I was thinking Q&A in a round table over dinner (How many programs should I apply to? Letters of Rec? What are some of the difference between programs? Academic vs Community Hospital? CV/PS tips? Interview trail tips? ) followed but an informal break out to go and ask specific questions to specific people if desired (e.g. What do you think of Duke vs Georgetown?). Bringing program lists ideas would be great so we can all hear about programs and compare! We will also try to have sign up for a review of CV/personal apps over Aug with some of the EMed faculty.

Please RSVP to alexab@stanford.edu and let me know if you have anything specific you would like to see, not stuck on this format, so please send suggestions! Although this workshop will be focused on those applying to EMed residency this year, others are welcome to attend as well (sometimes its helpful to know the process).
