Will you need to be in this year’s match? How does that work? Having an internship behind you, do you just try to match a PGY 234 or equivalent – or do you go outside the match?

You might think about Emergency… lots of fun (IMHO, of course), great hours, great variety, tons of procedures, little chronic care compared to other specialties, and higher acuity than a primary care clinic. (There are plenty of downsides, but I prefer to look at the ups.)

I also loved surgery, and went to med school to be a surgeon. Still, once I spent some time in the ED, I fell in love with it. I know you want a defining moment… I got one, and I hope you have yours.

Good luck,
