Applying to residency

I filled out my ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) and sent it to fourteen obstetrics and gynecology residency programs. I also uploaded my personal statement.

I am doing a gynecologic oncology rotation this month. It has been great, but really busy. I have been working from before sunrise every day until after sunset most days. And this is Florida, so the days are long here. I was getting a touch of seasonal affective disorder / sleep deprivation crankiness last week. I had this weekend off, so I am feeling a little rejuvenated. We have seven surgeries scheduled tomorrow, so I am going right back into the fire.

I have one interview invite so far. I don’t have my letters of recommendation in yet, so I’m not completely freaking out. Yet.
