Transitioning to Residency

The AMA's Minority Affairs Section (MAS) has developed this online resource for medical students transitioning into residency training programs. The information is meant to provide an overview of the planning, application and selection process from the personal viewpoints of our AMA-MAS colleagues who have successfully gone through the process themselves.

The materials below are a work in progress, and as such our AMA-MAS colleagues continue to provide materials and add their particular insights. We welcome your contributions as well. Please contact us via e-mail. For information on joining the AMA-MAS visit our website or call the AMA-MAS office at (312) 464-5529.

We also suggest that you visit the AMA's Resident and Fellow Section and the Medical Student Section websites for additional information regarding medical school and residency issues.
