Join us for the second AACOM/AOGME Virtual Residency Fair, and take advantage of a great opportunity to connect with participating programs during the 2020-2021 residency application process. 

Registration for this event is only open to current students and residency programs. Because this year is unlike any other for the residency application and review process, and AACOM and AOGME strongly encourage you to use the virtual fair to make connections and learn more about each program. Over 3,300 of your fellow medical students attended the July Virtual Residency Fair and we hope you are able to attend the October event!

Comments from past attendees


"Honestly this was so much easier than attending a residency fair in person, where there is a hubbub of attendees. I felt there was more order, as the hosts could speak with each person as they came into the chat. Was able to learn so much about the programs."

"Loved being able to speak directly with residents and program directors. I learned so much about the whole process (third year student) and was able to ask very frank questions."

"This went very smoothly. I was very happy with it. This platform was hands down better and easier and less stressful than others I have used."
