When should I start my scholarly project?

With regard to planning D&I, the timing of your SP months is up to you and your mentor though all projects must be completed by the end of March prior to graduation.

In past years, students have tried to complete at least two scholarly project months prior to residency interviews which begin in October. Here is some data about when the Class of 2016 started their projects:
  • March: 20%
  • April: 14%
  • May: 11%
  • June: 16%
  • July: 11%
  • August: 19%
  • September: 7%
  • October: 2%
  • November: 1%
