SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I thought it might be helpful to the Class of 2012 and future medical students to start a thread about how to research programs of interest as they prepare to apply. I've gotten a few PMs and have seen threads and posts from folks who don't seem aware of how to go about learning some of the basics about different programs for themselves. I'll kick it off, but I'm hoping if anyone else has a few tips of how to go about researching potential residency programs, we might be able to help future applicants make more informed decisions and cut down on the "How heavy is UCI's call schedule?" threads. Post your tips now, while they're still top of mind.
