Importance for getting interviews:

No. 1 LOR from cardiologists and PD
No. 2 Medical school and quality of residency program, top tier US AMG,
lower tier AMG vs IMG (to some program very important, to others not so
much) (top tier Univ program, low tier university program, good community
program vs mediocre community)
No. 3.Research, CV, PS.
No. 4.USMLE score (but if too low, then it is an issue)
No. 5. Connections (optional if above strong), if above weak, you need very
strong connections to make up, need phone calls of PD or chair to get IVs.

Several tricks I knew other folks used and it worked to get more interviews
are: 1. when you publish something, do a good job in writing, then designate
other program's specialty PD as the reviewers. 2. Call PC to express the
interest to their program and simply ask them to review your package. I
heard most packages are not even reviewed, they don't have time to do so.
(I didn't used these as it is too late when I heard these tricks, but they
told me this works.)



Importance to get ranked high:
Very good interview (good communication skills, showed nice personality,
showed your credentials well upon questioning) is still very important to
get ranked high.

1st tier: they love you to death due to your interview performance, or they
love you to death because of your exceptionally strong package and good
interview. (very few people fall in this category, so don't worry)

2nd tier:
1. very strong package with minimum no harm interview
2. strong package with good interview
3. average package with very impressive interview and convincing mutual
match

4. If the specialty chair can make calls before the program rank and the
chair can make a big difference. The question is the specialty chair will
not easily make a call for someone.

Not getting ranked:
Poor interviews (poor communication skills, offensive/aggressive verbal or
behavioral, arrogant)
Poor package with average interview with no strong connection


At this time of career, most candidates' interviews are all good, few people
make mistakes.

the most difficult ones are Cardiology and GI: most programs do 10:1
interview invites (they have 5
spots, invites 50 for interviews, usually gets 500 applications) AMG
applicants 93% matched, IMG 47% applicants matched.

Pulm and critical care, HemOnc are also very competitive
Allergy Immuno: in between
Rheum and Endo: about 90% positions filled each year,
nephron: only 68% spots filled, many programs cannot get their spots filled,
D/Geriatrics: similar to nephron, you need to do IM job part time,
