Driven by increasing medical student demand for guidance and resources
to assist in the competitive Main Residency Match Program® (“The
Match”), Kaplan Medical is launching its first-ever Residency Prep Boot
Camp at its flagship center in Midtown Manhattan. The intensive two day
weekend program will be held on August 27-28 and is designed to provide
medical students who plan to participate in the matching process this
September with expert insight, practice and guidance on navigating the
increasingly competitive process.
The Boot Camp sessions will be conducted by industry experts, and will
detail everything a medical student needs to know to maximize their
chances of securing the residency program of their choice. Sessions will
include several live interview practice sessions; sessions on personal
statements; and how to select the right residency program. Program
directors, residents and expert physicians will also be on hand to
participate in panel discussions and speak with aspiring physicians. The
keynote will be given by Dr. Malcolm Reid, president of the Medical
Society of the State of New York.
The matching process remains at an elevated level of competition because
the number of residency slots has not kept pace with the number of
students who have graduated in recent years from medical school. While
graduating more medical school students may lessen the effects of the
continuing doctor shortage (projected to be between 46,000-90,000 by
2025, by the Association of American Medical Colleges), these MDs cannot
practice independently without residency experience. In the most recent
cycle, 42,370 registered applicants, the highest number ever, competed
for 30,750 positions, according to the National Resident Matching
"Kaplan Medical has dedicated many decades of first-in-class resources,
expert faculty and superior curriculum with the sole intent of assisting
each and every medical student in their path to residency," said Daniel
Nelson, global executive director and boot camp chair, Kaplan Medical.
"We are so excited to launch our inaugural boot camp to help medical
students achieve their dreams of practicing medicine.”
