Welcome to this discussion on Aagaard and Abaza’s timely and important piece on the residency application process and its impact on the fourth year of medical school. I want to thank in advance all of the experts, moderators, and participants for their thoughtful comments and questions.

My first question is a general one: in your experience, either as a trainee applying into residency or someone advising or assessing applicants, what are some of your biggest frustrations about the residency application process?
