Cautionary Letter Published About Medical Student Research

Dermatology Online Journal co-authors Jordan V. Wang and Matthew Keller remind academic dermatology residency programs to be aware that some applicants may exaggerate their research activity. This action could potentially create an unfair advantage in the residency selection process. They advise, “…residency program directors should think twice about the possibility of research falsification until functional checkpoints can be built-in to the application process and until the inclusion of ‘submitted’ works are no longer permitted.” Their letter from the March 2016 issue of Dermatology Online Journal is available at: http://escholarship.org/uc/item/56x1t7ww
