ENT Jump Start
Crash course for ENT sub-internship
ENT is a language that they don't teach in medical school. Get a jump start before your rotations with this course which covers high yield topics and tips on how to maximize your rotation performance.
We designed this curriculum with the serious ENT student in mind. At White Coat Coaching, we firmly believe that sub-internship rotations are for learning and developing relationships. To do that well, a basic foundation of otolaryngology knowledge is required. Most of the resources out there are geared towards residents and there is A LOT of information that can get overwhelming very quickly, which leads to inefficient use of your very limited time and resources.
This lesson plan is a collection of the lectures Anya Costeloe and I wish we could give every rotating student throughout the audition season. In the realities of a busy ENT service, there's just never enough time. The course condenses these lectures into 26 modules you can access over and over again.
At 11yo, my curiosity for surgery blossomed while observing dad, a veterinarian, in the OR. Even though I contemplating many times becoming a vet (zoo vet, tigers are my spirit animal), I ultimately pursued human medicine and found an admiration for head and neck anatomy.
Otolaryngology may be defined by a relatively narrow stretch of anatomy, but in practice it integrates many body systems. The more I learned about ENT, the more I understood why ENT surgeons say it is the best kept secret of surgery!
Yet, as an MS4, I was not a typical, "top of the class, crazy high board score" student auditioning for ENT. I had to give it my all and then some on my audition rotations and reach out to many residents/mentors for advice. I really appreciated the help and encouragement I received and now I want to pay it forward.
One of my favorite quotes from a mentor.... "luck favors the well prepared," AKA ... if I can do it, so can you!
I absolutely fell in love with ENT during my third year rotation. At first I was scared to pursue ENT because of how competitive it was. The best advice I got was that even if I didn’t match, at least I would have know that I tried and never have to wonder, what if? And I’m so glad I did!
Auditioning was hard but the long hours in the car from CA to OH, the five months away from home, and the moving to a new place every 2 weeks paid off! Now I am an otolaryngology resident at St. John Providence in Michigan and I want to share what I’ve learned on the audition trail and help medical students interested in the specialty.
