Log Patient Encounters & Procedures for Residency Applications
There is nothing more appealing to a residency program director that an academically qualified applicant who can demonstrate their passion for their specialty. One way to do that is by providing evidence of the numerous exposures you have had during your training.
This feature allows you to do just that! Imagine being able to attach to your dermatology residency application, a numerical report of every patient you have seen over the last four years with skin conditions, the number of biopsies you performed, the number of times you have sutured etc. How impressive it would be to let your program director know you are ready to start your residency off running!
Accreditation Tracking for Institutions
For the first time ever, Universal Notes provides a full medical curriculum tagged according to the key accreditation standards for which medical schools are held accountable, including LCME, Core Entrustable Activities for Entering Residency, and the Graduation Questionnaire. No more months of searching for material, preparing reports, and tying up faculty in lengthy meetings. Simply push a button for the summary report.
