A1. Think about location, how close to home do you want to be? Do you want to pursue dedicated research time? People, case numbers, average board scores that applicants match into it - I also looked at the number of women residents and faculty #AWSchat

Justin B. Dimick @jdimick1
@LillianErdahlMD @WomenSurgeons @SarehParangiMD @LisaFerzoco #AWSchat A1. I would ask *specific* questions. Once you can articulate your goals in each domain, have a question about how their program can help develop you within that domain.

@WomenSurgeons A1 If you are looking into pursuing an academic career in surgery, how can you tell how much a program supports research time during residency? Or how can you measure research quality during that period of time? @LillianErdahlMD @jdimick1 @SarehParangiMD @LisaFerzoco #AWSchat

@camila_guetter @WomenSurgeons @LillianErdahlMD @SarehParangiMD @LisaFerzoco #AWSchat A1. Great question!

#AWSchat This might be controversial—but I think sending thank you notes to everyone is less valuable than reaching out to those who you want additional information from, e.g., “labs” or programs you might want to learn more about. Focused reconnections are a better use of time.
