Also, because this is a magnet hospital I would start seeking certification in the area that I will be working at.

My analytical skills developed through my research further my ability to develop diagnoses and handle complicated surgical patients. Finally my strong interpersonal skills both with patients and physicians that have been demonstrated through my clerkships and involvement in multiple physician organizations provide ideal characteristics in a career which demands such skills.

An ideal residency is one that will support me in this pursuit through strong resident education and in challenging me to further improve myself. In addition, exposure to wide variety of casework and early operational exposure to optimize experience in the operating room is important.
