Question "Reference"

When is it the best time to talk to your "reference" regarding residency? After applying or before applying?

Am not sure what do you mean by 'reference', do you mean your insider connection in the program?

If that's the case then I would suggest that you call him/her before applying and let him/her decide which is the best time to talk to the program director to look at your application.
