Dr. Charles Jobin Discusses the Orthopedic Residency Match on Podcast

August 23, 2017

Columbia Orthopedics Residency Program Director Charles M. Jobin, MD was a special guest on the White Coat Coaching podcast along with Scott E. Porter, MD, Chief Diversity Officer at Greenville Health System, to discuss their recent JAAOS article “Survival Guide for the Orthopaedic Match”, the first in a series of articles about the orthopedic residency match, and what orthopedic residency program directors are looking for in applicants. The article was also co-authored by Columbia Orthopedics Assistant Residency Program Director T. Sean Lynch, MD and Frank E. Stinchfield Professor and Chairman William N. Levine, MD.

White Coat Coaching “was created to provide an efficient and interactive place for students interested in orthopedic surgery training to understand what lays ahead and start preparing.” The conversation covered the usefulness of the USMLE as a screening tool, personality types that work best in residency programs, why away rotations are pivotal, and the importance of comprehensive letters of recommendation from full professors.

“These articles provide sort of a framework for these students to have an understanding of what to expect and how to excel and how to prepare for the residency match,” said Dr. Jobin.
