Dr. Thinker: Post interview communication with the programs

1.      Whom should you send you a thank you note?
-          You can email
A.      Program director
B.      Program coordinators – they are important
C.      Your interviewers
D.     The residents you met on the iv day

2.      Should you email or send a hand written thank you letter?
-          It’s up-to you. Some pick either one, some do both.

3.      Does not sending a thank you email decrease the chances of your match?
-          Ideally this shouldn’t affect your match probability.
-          But, it’s better to not to have to worry about this in our already panicky state.
-          So, send a nice thank you email.

4.      What should a thank you email/note mention?
-          You should be thanking them for the opportunity.
-          You can mention how you felt on the interview day.
-          You can mention what you loved about the program.

5.      What if they don’t reply to my email? Does it mean they don’t like me or that I won’t match there?
-          It’s very common for them no to reply. Remember, they are BUSY.
-          Also, sometimes they won’t reply because we might misunderstand their courtesy as a vibe for matching at their program.
-          Some might get a reply and some may not. It doesn’t mean anything.

6.      Can I send another email showing interest?
-          Yes, you can do this.
-          Ideally do it during the start of the ROL submission.
-          You can mention:
a.      Why you love their program
b.      That it is your top choice
c.       That you are looking forward to working there
        
7.      You can also email the PD/PC/Interviewers updating them about the things that happened after the interview. Eg: publications, step score, green card/ change in visa status.

8.      Don’t bug them by emailing them for every festive occasion like thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year. 1.      Whom should you send you a thank you note?
