Match Week - Day 4 - Not Just for Students

While we residents have enjoyed reliving our own Match Day's this week, we can't help but think about all the exciting career events of the people we work with. From the MAs who keep the FMC running, to the residency staff who help us with... well everything, and, who could forget, our attendings, it's fun to see all sorts of celebrations. 

Match Week - Day 3 - How You Celebrate

Halfway there... anyone else as excited as we are to get to Friday? Today we offer some comparisons in how to spend Match Day. As you are see, there is no wrong way to celebrate the day!

Balloons

Clearly a balloon drop offers drama and excitement--But we sort of think Darshana's happy tears are the main focus here.

The balloons might make you think of "Up," but for us, Aruna's excitement steals the show.

friends

As you know, in med school friends can become family - they are there from Step 1 to Third Year Surgery - seeing them Match is a highlight of your four years. As you can see, Shelby agrees!

Family

Even if you are not couples matching, like Kip, your family went to med school with you. Always nice to include them in the day!

As you saw from Suzanne's Match Day video- her family is part of her drive to be the amazing physician she is.

St Patrick's Day

Every so often Match Day falls on St. Patrick's Day. You may find, like Chris did, that a match letter is at the end of a rainbow

Match Week - Day 2 - Celebration Styles

As we gear up for this coming Friday, we can't help but look back and think about our own Match days. The anxiety, the joy, the earthquakes (true story, Match Week, 2014, California). This is one of the most important days of your career., so matter how you choose to celebrate-- make sure you get good pictures of it!
