Pearls of Wisdom

UW AOA has long overseen an important resource for second- and third-years as they transition to their clinical clerkships and residency applications: the AOA Pearls of Wisdom document. This resource compiles advice from current AOA members on how best to learn and succeed on various clerkships, such as efficient pre-rounding, which resources to consult, how to practice effective time management, and how to create study plans for end-of-clerkship exams. Included is our advice on preparing for Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 2 CS. We reviewed the knowledge gained after completing our ERAS applications, scheduling, and successfully navigating travels for most of our interviews; we updated these sections in the Pearls.
