My best friend from medical school is currently an orthopedic resident at Broward Hospital in Florida. As a way of giving back, she has given me a road map to share with you on the steps you should take if you’re considering orthopedics. Many of her recommendations also apply to other specialties, in particular “board heavy” and traditionally competitive ones. This advice was gathered from other residents that matched into orthopedics. Nonetheless, please keep in mind that everyone’s journey is different and some of these things may not apply to you. I hope that these pointers help!
Dr. Jacques is also more than happy to mentor. So if you want to reach out she would be a great resource!
The road map is at the end of this post 🙂
