Join us for the first AACOM/AOGME Virtual Residency Fair to give potential candidates and programs an extra opportunity to connect with each other during the 2020-2021 residency application process. This year is unlike any other for the residency application and review process, with less information and fewer opportunities for connections between programs and medical students. Join the residency fair to showcase and share information about your program, your selection criteria and connect and learn about potential candidates.
