M4 Career Connections: Understanding Yourself
This is a process that you should have been preparing for from day 1. But now in the M4 year, much work is left to do. Determining what's important to you in a residency training program and selecting programs that will meet your educational and career goals is the final step. Specifically, this step addresses applying to residency, interviewing, and creating a rank list for the Match. These activities are integral to implementing your specialty decision. The Office of Student Affairs will provide a great deal of support during this time.
