10 things IMG (and USMG) applicants should know for the 2020 residency MATCH: I can’t help but recall how stressful the application journey was one year ago. I hope this thread helps out (instead of adding stress)! @ERAS @AAMC
Build your CV: it helps as you are requesting letters from mentors, or basically any email you're sending. Have a clear CV that speaks of your accomplishments. Do not miss a certificate or work in progress. Here is a link to how to do a cover letter.
Before programs see your application & statement letter, look at it yourself. Know your goals, or at least outlines of your goals. Know your weaknesses and SHOW that you are working on them. Practice your ONE LINER. This will improve your statement letter and application.

We create #games & #simulations at @fovlabs to improve public policy. These tools are meant to help us live with the #complexity around us. The journey to create a non-academic research space in India hasn't been easy. #payitforward (1/n)
How do you create a space that helps address the complex problems we face as a society? How do you create tools to facilitate dialogue with stakeholders? How do you build bridges? How do you grapple with diversity without paying lip-service? #payitforward (2/n)
These were just a few questions that we were interested in, what we needed was somebody to listen to us, bounce some ideas off, support us financially, and just be there for us. #payitforward (3/n)

How good are Franking Credits?... A thread 1/7
Go for that tax give away if you can get it.
Gather up every last cent in #Frankingcredits where possible...
And then redistribute it.
Be the govt we don't have.
#auspol
2/7 The #frankingcredit handout that goes mostly to shareholders with $2 M or more is set to continue indefinitely.
Over the next 10 yrs we'll need to find $58B for fund tax refunds to ppl who pay no tax.
And the election has simply made more ppl aware of this free money.
#auspol
3/7 There have now been calls to broaden or increase the GST to fund this unsustainable give away.
The media have forecast cuts to govt services to raise revenue.
No matter which way you look at it, the poor will be paying long & hard, for this #frankingcredit 'gift'.

Maybe the question is not only about #JuniorDevs but rather how do we grow the talent that organizations & the industry needs.

I am the proud product of an internship program that was started by a passionate returnee technologist who had worked at Bell Labs #DevDiscuss
The model used was:

1. Identify bright young pre-college students

2. Embed them with full-time developers (employees) and find ways to develop their skills and harness their eagerness to learn by working on real-world client projects

#DevDiscuss
3. Focus on the hard skills, and the soft skills - time keeping, communication, team playing, learning, presentation skills in the same vein

4. During university a 30 min public transport ride away, they would work 16 hours a week plus (2 half days and Saturday)

For #TransDayofRemembrance I want to tell you a story.

Last Nov/Dec, I was homeless. @realDonaldTrump had just been elected. I was living in my car. I was cold. I was hungry. The pain from my chronic lower back issues was horribly bad, every moment of every day (1/x)
Sleeping in my car was making it worse. I could barely stand, let alone go grocery shopping or walk longer than about 10 min, w/o being totally wiped out for the next day or 2. I was receiving no medical treatment for being #trans, for my #AtrialFibrillation or my back pain (2/x)
I was unemployed, had no degree, didn't pass, and I was severely depressed.

Only a few ppl know this, but I think it's time to talk about it. I almost died last December. I didn't have much $, but I was doing research on the best methods to kill myself that'd be effective (3/x)
