So some of y’all don’t know the drama about Miami and match. Let me fill y’all non-medical, non-pgh people in on what’s going on. In your fourth year of medical school you go through an 8 month application/interviewing/ranking process that will eventually result in your post-graduation residency spot. During residency you receive your specialized training.
For me, my training will be a four year psychiatry program at Jackson-Memorial hospital in Miami. So, there are questions. I know this. Let me elaborate on the answers:
I start July 1st. Orientation is in mid June. I will be leaving da burgh sometime early June. In early May I am looking to leave da burgh to find an apartment. I am more nervous than excited. While this is the end result of years of sweat, blood and tears; it also signifies the beginning of a chapter where I am somewhat responsible for the mental/physical health of other people. This is quite a daunting realization for me–leaving me feeling ambivalent.
I have made myself a solid home here and while I am afflicted with a wanderlust for travel, I am still somewhat of a "settler". I enjoy having created this home-base with all my friends who have become family and am not necessarily looking to "start all over".
I don’t know how to feel about Miami. It’s a lot for me to digest.
