About the Discussion

Applying and Interviewing for Fellowship

As the end of residency draws near, you might be asking yourself what’s next? Many residents pursue further training by applying to subspecialty fellowships. Whether you are bound for cardiology, endocrinology, or rheumatology, you may be unsure how to start your application or prepare for fellowship interviews. NEJM Resident 360 is here to begin the conversation. We have invited experts, including fellowship directors from different specialties and geographical regions, to engage in a discussion about how you can be most successful in the fellowship application and interview process.

Some topics we plan to cover:

  • What criteria should I consider when applying to fellowships?
  • What will make me stand out on interview day?
  • What questions should I be asking?
  • How does the interview process differ from residency interviews?
  • Is it okay to take a gap year between residency and fellowship?
  • What makes a good fellow?
