Prepping for PGY-1

Congratulations on matching! It is a testament to the hard work and dedication you have directed at your journey towards becoming a physician. The options are plentiful for the way to spend the time between The Match and the start of residency, but what is the best way? Should you study for the upcoming year or use the time to relax before it begins? Join us as we discuss tips from current interns, residents, and faculty on how to make the most of your fourth year to prepare for your intern year.

Some questions we plan to address include:

  • What are the best resources to help prepare for residency and survive the first month? (Check out Tips for Intern Survival on the NEJM Knowledge+ blog.)
  • Are certain electives especially useful to take before graduating?
  • How can you prepare for the changing roles and responsibilities when transitioning from medical student to intern?
  • How do you begin developing good habits for intern year?
