  • Does Step 2 score influence rank?

    Yes

  • Should Applicants Do Away Rotations?

    Yes.

    Plan to do at least one away rotation at a program that you are interested in applying to and have a good chance of matching. Your rotation will serve as a job audition. UNR Med students as rule are very impressive to other programs. Planning this in late August-September in order to get a letter of recommendation is ideal.
