Interviewing time is quickly approaching. I have my first interview in one week.
I have four interviews scheduled so far. I would like more. I am thinking of applying to more programs. I haven’t gotten an invite to my local program yet, which will most likely be my top choice. But, I am doing a full month there next month, and they invite and interview late.
I am preparing for the interviews, clothing wise and mentally wise. I have no idea what to wear to a mixer with the residents.
I just wish I could fast forward to match day.
In the meantime, it seems like I may be taking a leave of absence this month. I am entitled to a vacation month, which I wanted to take this month, but I was assigned to emergency medicine this month, and I have February and April still open. While my site was willing to have me switch my ER month to February, but my school has a policy that you can’t change your months without actually switching with another student. But, no other student will have a vacation month they set up and then want to switch. So, I am finagling it as a one month leave of absence. I will work out the details tomorrow. And then, I’ll get to interview twice this month, and even spend Thanksgiving with my kids!
