Happy October! To the first and second years, congratulations on getting through your first lectures, tests, and perhaps social gatherings of the new school year. For the third years, congratulations on getting through the summer of new experiences and steep learning curves on the wards. For the fourth years, may the odds be ever in your favor (if you might excuse my slightly outdated but fitting reference).
Since the school year can still be called "new," I wanted to offer a another resource from the AAMC. In this resource you will find no tricks, only various wonderful treats broken down by year (i.e. a special section for MS1s, MS2s, etc). Some of the goodies include:
- Summer between MS1 and MS2 opportunities
- How to find a mentor
- Help with finances
- VSAS information
- Guidance on speciality selection
- Residency application information

All the best!
