#Meded faculty: please stop actively discouraging your #URM #medicalstudents from pursuing competitive specialties! I hear this almost weekly & it never ceases to shock me to hear how often medical educators kill students' dreams.

I've lost count how many times I've had a #URM / #UIM #medicalstudent tell me they were discouraged from pursuing a competitive specialty and should pursue primary care.

I've lost count how many times I've had a #URM / #UIM #medicalstudent tell me that their #Step1 score is why they aren't pursuing #dermatology. And in the majority of these times, the score is >220, often >230.

Just announced by @AAMCtoday: ERAS delayed; applications/MSPE released Oct 21.

Other recommendations:
- Limit away rotations
- Conduct virtual interviews
- Perform holistic review

These are a few of the questions I am often asked by junior physicians, or even peer physicians. I thought I’d share with you some the top 10 pearls I share with others, as we focus on many of these in the Brave Enough Master Class. #tweetorial #medicalstudents #medicalschool
