Introduction to Postgraduate American Medicine

Harvard Medical School will hold a 2 day Introduction to the Practice of American Medicine (IPAM) workshop at UCD Health Science Centre, Room B004

The course is designed to prepare participants for a career in the American Health system. The focus is on developing Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) competencies, test-taking and interview skills, and understanding of how to develop a successful career trajectory.

At the 2-day workshop, you will learn things you will not find online or in books from instructors with program director experience. The course is focused on skill set building -we mix didactic content with group exercises to teach practical cal skills you can use immediately to make you a better candidate. We will share our insights into the process and what makes a good candidate for US training even better. IPAM will change how students see and how they prepare for the US residency training path. Everything about the application process and US training will be much clearer, and students will be much more confi dent in designing a CV, drawing a personal statement, interviewing and obtaining US Clinical Experience and understanding expectations during US clinical electives. 

Drawing on the expertise of Harvard faculty directly involved in educating medical trainees, this two-day program will provide unique insights into the process of an American medical training program application process.
