It's Match Day! Why do I, as a third year emergency medicine resident, care? After all, we matched our incoming class of PGY-3 EM residents back in November. We're a rural centre which rarely fills all of our family medicine spots. I have very little contact with first year family medicine residents, and will only be a resident myself until the end of November. So basically, this day doesn't really have any impact on my life. Except, possibly, to bring back the PTSD flashbacks of my own Match Day 3 years ago.
Because someone who once did something very nasty to me is graduating from medical school this year. Word on the street is that she's not in a great position to match to her chosen specialty. If there is such thing as karma, she is currently drowning her sorrows somewhere as we speak.
