S2EP9: Complexities of Virtual Interviews and How to Set Achievable Goals

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve seen society adapt to virtual settings for nearly everything.

Of course, there will always be a debate on if virtual environments are better or worse for working, socializing, or even grocery shopping, but how does a virtual society interview medical students? Better yet, how can medical students truly vet the programs they’re applying for without seeing them in person?

On this episode of Dentist Brain Candy, I discuss a few more interesting studies from the February 2022 edition of the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. First, a study written by Kai Codner explores the way that Covid-19 has introduced virtual interviews for new surgical residents and the pros and cons of both virtual and in-person interview programs.

The second article, written by Catherine Haviland, expands on this same topic and finds that virtual externship programs may have more benefits than an in-person internship program.

Listen in as I continue sharing a few chapters of the book Limitless by Jim Kwik. In these chapters, we uncover helpful tips for goal setting and a list of the ten best foods for your brain.
