Phase 2 of The Match

It sucks. I know. But you can’t give up yet. This is by no means the end of the road – it’s just a speed bump.

Quite frankly, the first round of the match is filled with mistakes. Many candidates focus on “big name” programs and may only apply to a few. At the same time, these programs have the advantage, so they can be very selective who they interview vs not interview. 

Because of this more and more excellent, but lesser-known programs are significantly reducing the number of Phase 1 candidates they’ll interview and PLAN on going to phase 2 where they can potentially land better candidates. In other words, the tables turn from their favor to yours!

For the past few months, I’ve been offering “Interview: How to prepare for and perform at the highest level on any pharmacy residency interview” for free. While this guide is useful for many in Phase 1, there are important differences you need to know in order to improve your chances during Phase 2.

That’s why I’ve created Phase 2: The Ultimate Residency Interview Guide. Beyond just the differences of Phase 1 vs Phase 2, this guide itself is different. It’s not just a book, but a fully online video-based course.

Phase 2 of the match is not something you want to take any more chances on, you have to prepare yourself. Given the Global Pandemic, interviews are almost certainly going to be virtual. Yet another obstacle to overcome. The only thing you can do is better yourself and improve your interview techniques. This course is one huge component of that.

If you find the course helpful and want to keep learning more about improving your candidacy for the residency position that’s right for you, make sure to reach out to me at
