Get ready! Residency is an amazing experience of collaboration, learning and friendship. There are a few things I learned in preparation for the two residencies I attended, which I will share with you. I hope these tips are useful for you and make your residency planning and attendance a little easier to manage.
My COHORT was the last one which required two residencies. I learned the hard way the first time around. The second time was not as stressful. Since only one residency is required with groups going forward, it makes sense to make it the best it can be for your learning experience and networking. Not all of the items below may apply to you. Use what you believe will be most helpful.
