GW Med Alumni Connect - FAQs

What time of year will I be contacted by students?
Residency interviews take place between October-January, but even third-year medical students are looking for guidance and information prior to their residency applications. It's best if you can be available at any time of the year. If you have specific times that you would not be able to connect with a medical student and answer questions, please indicate that on your interest form.

How many students can I connect with?
As many times as your schedule allows.

What assistance might I provide?
You can share information about residency programs at specific institutions or hospitals, information about your chosen specialty, information about the local residency program's area/community, guidance on how to manage residency years, and guidance on relocating with a partner, spouse, or children. Basically, share any information you wish someone would have told while you experienced this exciting and challenging time.
