This episode is all about the application process from a student perspective. Dr. Daniel Li is a recently matched orthopaedic surgery resident at Ohio State and together we go into a candid, no BS, deep dive of his strategies and thought processes during medical school. We’re breaking up this discussion into two parts. This episode, part one, is all about MS1-MS3 years. We talk about how to get hooked into the ortho didactics and research at your home institution, how to take advantage of your nonsurgical rotation, and much much more.
