Residency Match Day is Today. Didn't Match? Here Are Some Options

Today is Match Day. Congratulations to all the 4th year medical students who matched! If you didn't match, let's consider some options.

If you didn't match, here are a few suggestions:

1. Develop a clear, one-year plan where you will work in a non-clinical setting, volunteer, travel, etc. Make sure you stay productive. Find some non-clinical jobs on the NonClinicalJobs Job Board.

2. Residency spots will open up throughout the year. Do you want to jump into a position in the fall? As long as you're willing to live anywhere, you'll find open positions.

3. Spend the next 12 months strengthening your residency application for the next year.

4. Speak with a mentor/career coach/advisor who can guide you through this process.
