What to do After the Match?

Posted by medliorator on April 18, 2009

4th year mudphudder shares valuable lessons learned from his own mistakes:

what I should have done in hindsight:

1) get ACLS/ATLS certified ASAP – most of you will take a month off in december or january for interviews, get certified on one of your off days.  Also, most of your medical schools will offer these courses for free, so no excuses.

2) Start looking for residency housing ASAP.  If you know where you will be (to varying degrees of certainty), start looking even before the match.  Look in a few different cities if you have a gut feeling of where on your rank list you will land, but LOOK.
