Here's what residency program directors and attendees have to say about the Symposium!

“It is so nice to see candidates on my interview schedule who I initially met at the Symposium. Go! You won't be disappointed.”

  - Sorabh Khandelwal, MD; Program Director, The Ohio State University

“This information is vital to all 3rd years and even for 2nd years about to start their clinical rotations... Not many other events allow for such great close interaction with program directors of some of the best residencies around. Compared to fairs at things at national conferences, it is much easier to learn about programs in this smaller environment.”

  - Michael Messina, OMS-III; Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine

“The Medical Student Symposium and Residency Fair is an excellent opportunity for academic discussion, skills enhancement, and to network with program directors to gain an edge when applying to emergency medicine residency programs.”

  - William Fraser, DO, FACOEP-D; Program Director, Doctors Hospital-OhioHealth
