2022 Virtual Residency Fair  August 5, noon - 8 pm

Connect with More Candidates for your Programs at the AACOM/AOGME Virtual Residency Fair

Join us for the fourth AACOM/AOGME Virtual Residency Fair on Friday, August 5, 2022, from 12 - 8PM ET and take advantage of a great opportunity to connect with potential candidates for your programs during the 2022-2023 residency application cycle.

Similar to last year, due to the ongoing pandemic, there may be fewer opportunities this year for connections between programs and medical students. Join the residency fair to showcase and share information about your program and selection criteria and to connect with and learn about potential candidates.

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."

"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. Thank you."

"Loved being able to speak directly with residents and program directors."
