Prepping for PGY1: What You Need to Know Before Starting Residency

Congratulations! You’ve matched! In just a few short months, you will receive your medical degree and begin your residency program. But what should you do until then? Read as much as you can about interpretation of ABGs and workup of chest pain? Put the books down, travel and relax? Come join NEJM Resident360 as we discuss tips from current interns, residents, and faculty on how you can make the most of your fourth year to prepare yourself for internship. Some questions we plan to address:

  • What are the most helpful resources to prepare for residency and survive the first month?
  • Are there any electives I should plan to do before I graduate?
  • How should I manage the transition from medical school to residency?
