By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Pravin_Mangal]Pravin Mangal
The 2011 medical residency match was the most competitive compared to previous match years. There has been in increase in the area of primary care, like Family Medicine positions, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics. This is especially good news because these positions were funded by president Barrack Obama's administration. Because of this funding and backing, medical residency openings are expected to increase and continue to rise in the next decade in a gradual state.
So which medical specialty showed the highest increase in terms of Physician growth outside the field of primary care? The categorical Internal Medicine showed the fastest growth when it came to the resident match in 2011. Other areas with strong growth included Radiology and Emergency Medicine.
Increase Your Chance of A Medical Residency
Many medical students want to know how to strengthen their application when it comes time for the residency match. The first important thing to keep in mind is to approach your desired residency program one step at a time. The first thing medical students should do is focus on completing their medical school and keeping all transcripts in your records. The second thing to keep in mind is to focus on your USMLE examinations and to make sure you complete these very important board exams in a successful manner. Keep in mind, first time successful USMLE pass attempts lets the residency directors know you a serious applicant and more opportunities will be available to you.
Once you have your USMLE scores and transcripts, you should work on your CV. Your CV should include basic information about yourself, your training, and any extra-curricular activities you may have or interests. It is true that residency programs take stock in your USMLE scores above all but these programs are also seeking applicants who have a sense of character and personality as compared to an individual who is only book smart who lacks the sense of someone with character. Residency programs are not looking for someone who is going to be a robot with no inter-personal skills or common sense. It is to your benefit if you have interests and activities you actively pursuer outside the field of medicine.
The third tip to keep in mind is to network with your peers and seniors. Stay up to date on the latest medical news and residency trends. Being aware of your industry and keeping up on the latest news will help you in your future profession. The fourth thing is to keep research the residency program of your dreams. Please keep in mind that your USMLE scores have direct correlation with the type of specialty you apply for. For example, if you passed the USMLE Step 1, Step 2, and Step 3 examination with the minimum score, or even passed the board exams with multiple attempts, applying for Dermatology, ENT, Surgery or ER would be counter-intuitive.
