EM Match Advice: How to “Swipe Right” this Interview Season

Applying for residency programs has often been compared to the modern world of dating. So in this 26th installment of the EM Match Advice series, we discuss finding the right-fit program for applicants using modern dating terminology. Join us in this fun and informative episode in navigating the residency match process.


A high-stakes component in a medical student’s application for an emergency medicine (EM) residency is the Standard Letter of Evaluation, or SLOE. This is a standardized templated letter, written by an group (e.g. department) or faculty from an EM-residency program. This episode of EM Match Advice gives a behind-the-scenes peek into what letter writers are thinking and a deeper dive into the mechanics of the SLOE.
