Trinity School of Medicine Celebrates Residency Match Success in 2017: New Programs, New States, and a Growing Reputation in Healthcare

Few days loom as large on a medical student's life like Match Day. For those who aren't aware, once a year, the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) releases all of the new residencies for the upcoming year, typically very soon after Canada's own CaRMS releases their match results. These days also coincide closely with graduation, which makes it a very exciting Spring.

While medical students transition from students to professionals at this point, the learning is far from over. Residency, lasting anywhere from 3-8 years, is where students are shaped by their specialization, and even at their completion, often leads students on to fellowships to further refine and specialize, depending on their interests and career goals. 

We're tremendously proud of each and every one of our soon-to-be graduates. So, without further ado:

Medical School, Rejection, the Right Fit, and Staying on Track for September

There are no guarentees. No matter how qualified you might be, how hard you work, and how tactically you apply, you might still not get into a US or Canadian medical school. Given how many doctors we know, as both faculty and alums, we are very well versed in the stomach-dropping panic at the thought of not getting in. Life is, of course, bigger than becoming a doctor, but then again, is it, really? For you? 

There are exceptions but, for most people, becoming a physician is not a job. It's a calling. It's a vocation that is often intextricably tied to personal aspirations, sense of identity, even a philosophical contemplating of the role of a person in a society. It's only natural to feel utterly heartbroken, panic stricken, and out of sorts if after all the planning, all the work, it just doesn't work out. 

You didn't get into medical school. So, now what do you do?
