Abstract

Application to dermatology residency is a highly competitive process. Although factors associated with successfully matching have been studied, less is known regarding the ability of admissions committees to screen applicants in a uniform manner or the importance of the interview in ranking applicants. Our goal was to retrospectively measure our admission committee evaluators’ concordance regarding residency application credentials and interview performance, and ultimately the effects on final applicant ranking.
