I'm going to an EM residency fair in a couple of weeks and I'm trying to think of questions to ask the reps that would give me the most bang for the buck so to speak since I have to pick audition rotations like now (and apply in 3 months). So far I have:

1) What are you looking for in an applicant?
2) 3 or 4 year program?
3) Community or teaching?
4) # beds/#visits?
5) #applicants per position?
6) # shifts/month
7) Electives?
8) Attendings involved in teaching?

Any other important ones I'm missing?

just a thought but I would avoid asking questions about info you can get on the websites like how long a program is, how many residents, or what the curriculum is.

I would ask what they are looking for and how they are unique or what their strengths are. This will give you a better feel for the program and how you fit.

Take a look at the SAEM med student resource website (link in my sig). It will help give you some answers to the questions you posed, and there are links to interview questions, which should suffice for a residency fair (which is like a mini-interview).
