Ditto on endo... all virtual so far. I'm not quite sure what the format is going to be. Previous interviews involved written exams, dexterity tests, and hands on endo/ diagnosis. I think it will be difficult to test these points virtually. Anyone have any thoughts?

I know for sure NYU Langone pedo is doing online only. I haven’t heard from any other pedo programs, but given the current circumstances I think it’s likely.

Programs won’t be able to afford to expose their residents and faculty to a group of people from all the place.

I’m just guessing. I don’t have a crystal ball. Just a janky ass magic 8-ball.

As of today, I am not doing preceptor or shadow experiences prior to interview day. Things could change later in the season.

If you want an virtual insight into our program, come to my virtual graduation and AEGD patient care showcase. the link opens on 5:30 pm- 7:00 pm, central time on Thursday July 9th 2020.

Topics: Each resident is touching on some cases and what they learned. Implants, grafting,full mouth reconstruction, mission work, community service, endo, perio, restorative,oral surgery,ethics,professionalism, plus much more. Our theme: Training dentists to thrive in small towns of Kansas, where specialists are unavailable.You will need to pass the US boards to attend, due to Kansas State requirements.

Hope you get to watch Wichita State AEGD, click on the link below on 5:30 central time- Thursday July 9th 2020

My Health network has gone all virtual due to continued travel restrictions, and to promote health and safety of staff, current residents, and patients. It will quite a different experience than we all are used to......but what hasnt lately?

Best of luck!
