    Hey guys and gals,

    I am applying for an integrated residency spot at my school and need to get help with my CV format. Is there a template somewhere? I've never made up a "CV" before and know it's not the same as a resume. Is there a source that you used?

    Please let me know, I'd greatly appreciate it. Please!!!!

    Frank

    I'm only a lowly "almost 2nd year," but I might as well share what's worked for me.

    Google some docs you know and see if they've got a CV posted. Copy and paste the format they used into Word and fill in your own info. Here's the one I used (http://medweb.pc.edu/faculty/estiles/cv.html).

    I was told not to put social security #s, date of birth, place of birth, marital status, childen's names on CV - especially not for residency applications.

    They're not supposed to discriminate based on age, gender, marital status, etc... so it's not relevant. I would take the information ERAS requires - and put it in better format. That's what I did and I encountered no problems. :idea:

    Windows XP has a nifty little wizard that spits out very slick CVs. I love the way mine looked when it was done! I'd NEVER be able to format it like that, and I can do all kinds of stuff with Word.

    hi Samoa,
    Could you be a bit more elaborate?Exactly which nifty wizard in Office XP are you talking about?
    :confused:

    Go to the section at the right called "New from Template." Select General Templates, and then go to Other Documents. It'll have several "resume" templates, that actually work just as well for a CV.

    You may have to insert your program disk to load it.
