Fellowship Program Directors Survey Results: How to Strengthen Your Fellowship Application

This month’s Residents Corner features Dr. Ezra Teitelbaum, PGY5 at Northwestern University and resident member of the SSAT Resident Education Committee, discussing results from a survey of fellowship program directors by the SSAT Resident Education Committee. Recognizing that there are limited existing data to help residents prepare a successful application, fellowship program directors across the United States and Canada were asked what aspects of fellowship application were deemed to be the most important in ranking applicants. We hope, these results will help residents know how to strengthen their fellowship application and to obtain their fellowship of choice.

In the coming months, Residents Corner will highlight many of these areas such as,

  • How do I score well on the ABSITE?
  • Academic conferences
  • How to give a good presentation
  • How do I write a good manuscript?
  • Letters of recommendation and personal statement
  • How to prepare for an interview? How to interview well
  • Finding a mentor/being a mentee
  • Sponsorship vs mentorship vs advisors
