    Thank you Matt. Is there any way to add a photo that I can declare as the Official one? I never did like the pixelated one that was on my profile as a resident, and the grey outline that’s there now is even less pleasing to the eye. Thank you for your assistance.

  2. Matt Simpson says:

    Hello Matt. Thanks for the question. Your official photo can only be changed by administrative staff as is it used by staff and faculty for person identification purposes.

    Hi. I have uploaded a new photo. However, there is still an old “official” one which won’t go away. That’s my picture from my first day of med school and now that I’m almost done residency, I’d like a more recent/professional one! How do I change it? Does it have to come from your end?

    • Matt Simpson says:

      Hello Genevieve. Thank you for the great question. Adding (or in your case updating) resident photos is actually a project that we are in the middle of right now, and we are working with the PGME office to coordinate this. Unfortunately we do not allow users to change their “official” photo as it is used by staff and faculty for identification purposes.

Published Mon, November 13, 2017

“Would any of us have gotten into medical school today?” This was the tongue-in-cheek question I posed to my classmates at our medical school reunion last year. They were rather amused by it and, being very much aware of the high academic standards required by our current admissions processes, believed the answer was an obvious “no”. I tried to raise … Continue reading
