What a surreal week it's been!
I found out on Monday-March 13, 2017 that I Matched!!! Woooohoooooo!!!!
Then on Friday I learned where I was headed...I'm going to Milwaukee, Wisconsin! I Matched in Family Medicine at my #1 Choice! I couldn't be happier! I applied to a bunch of places and interviewed at quite a few. I met some really nice people along the way. The programs were all very good and I would have been satisfied with Matching at any of the places I interviewed. Honestly!! I can fit in just about anywhere as long as the situation isn't totally toxic. I get along well with others. And I'm no stranger to working hard.
There was just something extra special about this program that resonated so strongly with me. Actually a few things: a huge focus on community outreach and engagement, Residents can tailor their learning to what they want to do in the future, and they support Global Health electives. Win-win-win for me. I'm thrilled I matched with them and I'm looking forward to starting the next phase my career there!
But before all that, I have one week left of school :|
I have a post planned on a few strategies I found helpful when preparing my ERAS application, applying, and interviewing, so check back soon if you're preparing for the 2018 Match Season which opens up in just a few more months!
Thanks for all the support and well wishes. Until next time....
