Poll - How much is your family's monthly cellular bill?

New post is up! Do you have internet on your cell? A family plan? Texting?

Hey All,

We are in our third year of med school and are scheduling clerkships/interview rotations. My student was just offered a clerkship at an amazing program however, he is a D.O. student and we can't seem to find any D.O. residents listed for that program. While I understand they wouldn't invite you if you weren't competitive, I'm still a bit hesitant to celebrate.

Does anyone have any input on D.O. friendly programs and this whole process?

"St. Matchrick's Day" 2011

Hi! I'm wondering what all you 4th year wives are doing/wearing for "St. Matchrick's Day" tomorrow! Some of my wifey friends have found St. Patty's Day shirts and manipulated them a little bit. For instance, my shirt says "Kiss Me" on the front and I am covering up the back that says "I'm Irish" with a large clover button that will say "We Matched!" We're also decorating our table with "St. Matchrick's Day" decorations.
I've collected some shirts, hats, scarves, etc. that represent the top 5 programs we are trying to match to for my hubby to put on after reading his envelope aloud.
SO! What are you all doing for tomorrow? I want to hear how other programs run their match day events and what creativity will be flowing...
Good luck tomorrow everyone!

Book club

Sorry for my hiatus, but I finally got some more chapters up on the forum for our Book Club read, Complications by Atul Gawande.

I have:

Education of a Knife
The Computer and the Hernia Factory
When Doctors Make Mistakes

All of these could lead to some really intersting discussions! If you are just starting, don't worry, you don't have to be on the same chapter as everyone else.

And if you want the code to apply for the forum, check out the forum page.

PS Sleep well everyone hoping to match! Best of luck!

Japan Relief

Did any of you have family or friends there? I'm still hoping to hear from my son's pen pal there. Do you know of any doctors or nurses going there to help? Anything to share?


We had some problems with inappropriate posts on the forum. I really apologize if you were subjected to these posts. The posts and the users have been deleted. We also changed the settings so that only registered users can see the posts. That should give it a more secure feeling. New users will now have to be approved by the admins, so please be patient while waiting for approval. If your user name is something I can recognize as being from this blog, you will get approved faster. Otherwise, I will be emailing you for verification. Please email me back so I can approve you. If you haven't emailed me back in week, the request will be deleted and you will need to reapply. Thanks!

Some people who had been inactive for a long time, or applied but never logged on, got deleted. You just need to reapply. We just want to make sure we don't have any spammers on there.

Finally, if you posted anything that felt spammy (advertisements, links to other sites, etc.), you were also deleted.

I have no way of knowing which users are legitimate users from this blog. I apologize if I deleted someone I wasn't supposed to. Please feel free to reapply.

Any other questions, please let me know!
