The CARMs Match day was just this Monday… which means in about a year’s time, it’ll be my turn.
It frightens and stresses me out. It seems like there’s still so much to learn and do. I feel the pressure to start “playing the game” by showing my face to program directors, arranging electives, looking good for references, etc.
It’s the stress of getting into medical school all over again… but this time you’re competing nation-wide… with other medical students.
