Abstract

Acceptance to dermatology residency is a difficult and competitive process and it is not well studied which factors contribute to a successful application and admission to an accredited program. Our goal was to retrospectively measure the concordance within our admissions committee regarding residency applicant credentials and interview performance to determine their effects on final applicant ranking.
