Hey everyone, quick question: Does it help to get a residency if you know someone who is a physican (friend, uncle, aunt, collegue..). If so, where and when should this be mentioned?

It would help if they were in the same department as which you applied. They can put a good word for you to get an interview, however do NOT mention it during the interview unless you directly worked with the physician and they wrote you an LOR.

Like the person before me just mentioned. Unless they are in the hospital you are applying at, it has bare minimum bearing on your app.
