s/p The Match — One Year Later: March 2019

This March, interns will be one year status-post The Match. As the PGY-2 year fast approaches, we seek reflections from interns on the transition from medical school to post-grad life, expectations of intern year versus the reality of intern year, and on the trials and tribulations of your first year as a practicing physician. Whether it be advice for the incoming class of interns, or meaningful patient stories that shaped your year, or your tips for personal wellness, or snippets from your personal notes or journals, we seek all reflections on the formative first year of being in-house.
