Prepping for PGY1

Active from to

Congratulations! Matching is an exceptional accomplishment that represents years of work. As you cruise through the few months between The Match and the start of residency, how can you best use this time? Should you read up on clinical case scenarios or use the time to travel and relax? Join us on NEJM Resident 360 as we discuss tips from current interns, residents, and faculty on how to make the most of your fourth year to prepare for internship.

Some questions we plan to address:

  • What are the best resources to help you prepare for residency and survive the first month? (Check out Tips for Intern Survival on the NEJM Knowledge+ blog.)
  • Which electives should you complete before you graduate?
  • How do you prepare for the changing roles and responsibilities when transitioning from medical student to intern?
