Exciting New Ways to Finance Residency Interviews

It’s that time of year again when fourth year medical students across the country prepare for the long, stressful, and expensive process of interviewing for residency positions.

“The cost of flying and hotels is going to be a killer,” mentions fourth year student Don Johnson.  “To help save some money, me and a bunch of other students on Student Doctor Network decided to share hotel rooms.  We were able to fit 10 of us in one room comfortably – it helped save a lot!”

It appears the airline industry is also becoming sympathetic to the medical student cause.  According to United Airlines, they will offer an exclusive deal for verified medical students, where two students can share one seat on any domestic United flight for only 1.5 times the cost.

“It’s honestly a great deal,” states Don.  “I’m hoping they increase the deal to three students per one seat soon.”

Newly-minted intern at University of California-San Francisco (UCSF), Taylor Johnson, attempts to quell some of these medical student anxieties.  “It’s really not bad!  You get to travel to neat places, and meet a lot of really interesting people!”  When questioned about expenses, Taylor mentions her husband is in finance, so she’s “not really sure.”
