Program Directors Interview with the Program Director

I am an international med student, haven't taken any steps yet, aiming for match 2013.
I am currently pursuing my elective at a Univ affiliated hospital in the US. With luck I managed to get an appointment with the program director of IM. I am unsure of what to talk/ask about to increase my chances of acceptance when I apply next year. I was thinking of maybe giving him a copy of my resume. Could I do anything to ensure that he remembers me next year when I apply?

Kindly suggest.

Ask him this question
"What things I should do to increase my chances of getting matched?"

Also give him your CV.

Also ask him if you can contact him later, to remind him about you.
