In the Connecting Virtually portion, Dr. McKinley will discuss how to interact with interviewers and programs to create a positive connection and leave a good impression. The Finding Your Fit As an Applicant portion will highlight ways that applicants may best determine virtually if a program is a place where they would fit in and be able to train. Dr. Tatem will discuss how the applicant can assess the program personality as a place for their own future training. After each talk, there will be a live 10-minute Q&A panel to answer any questions attendees may have regarding these topics. There will also be a general Q&A at the end of the webinar.
