AFMC Decision Regarding 2022 Resident (R-1) Match


Recommended Posts

Looks like the timelines for the 2022s are out:

What strikes me is that they've already decided to make all interviews virtual. This seems very premature to me and I wonder what influenced that decision. We haven't even seen how virtual interviews will go for the 2021s, and by 2022 there might already be an effective vaccine in place...

From what I have heard a lot of people had been talking about making interviews virtual even before covid citing the burdensome cost and environmental impact. I figure they decided to avoid the uncertainty of a potential vaccine and pulled the trigger for virtual interviews for the next cycle.

I have heard similar. I can see that perspective, although I do think it disadvantages certain schools that have trouble attracting people, as they have less opportunity to impress applicants. I also think it is more feasible if applicants have had a chance to do electives at that site, so hopefully they allow OOP electives for the 2022s.
