How might a pure competency-based curriculum change residency interview season?
OHSU is one of several schools that recently received an AMA-funded grant to push medical educational innovation.  Our new curriculum, YourMD (yeah it has a cool marketable name), is in many ways a test lab for this grant (to be clear, most of what I'm goin...
