“Emily was extremely helpful while preparing for my orthopedic interviews.  We discussed multiple different interviewing strategies and different ways to answer interview style questions. I strongly recommend seeking advice from WCC while preparing for interview season.”

“White Coat Coaching is a phenomenal resource available to medical students aspiring to match into an orthopedic surgical residency, with all the information for a successful audition season in one place.

As a MS4 on an audition, I got invaluable help in developing skills in the operating room, an ability to systematically and correctly read X-rays, an understanding of orthopedic concepts, and techniques to successfully interview.
