Zooming into Residency: Pandemic prompts remote interviews with hospitals for grads

Zooming into Residency: Pandemic prompts remote interviews with hospitals for grads

February 10, 2021

"For Annie Cathcart, a graduating Harvard Medical School MD/PhD student, applying for her residency in OB/GYN this year could have been very challenging. She gave birth last September and traveling for interviews would have been difficult, especially having to decide whether to bring her infant son with her or leave him at home.

But because of the COVID-19 pandemic, she didn’t have to."
