The National Resident Matching Program reported that U.S .medical school seniors who matched into dermatology applied to a median of 90 programs and attended nine interviews last year, which is disadvantageous for applicants of lower socioeconomic backgrounds. Vincent DeLeo, MD, talks to Shari Lipner, MD, PhD about the interview process during COVID-19. “It’s important to try to level the playing field in this difficult time. ... While it may be possible to do live interviews in the same fashion with people from our home institutions, it really wouldn’t be fair to do that in light of the fact that many of these candidates are going to have to do the interviews virtually.” Dr. Lipner also discusses dermatology rotations for medical students and tips for applicants.
