Start on: residency applications

I've added a new tag to my labels: Residency applications! I'll be applying to GPR/AEGD programs for the 2016 cycle. I pride myself on having a good grip on this whole dental school application thing but this Sunday evening, I am feeling a little bit overwhelmed.

I finally decided over the last few weeks: I am going to do a residency program. And commit to it too! The indecision was tiring: I was so set on working straight out of dental school one moment, then nope, definitely doing a residency. Or not. Add to it the fact that I'm not a U.S. citizen, and everything gets a bit more complicated... But this is it. I'm going to do a general practice residency.

Gretchen Rubin has the best stage presence. 

Clarity. Recognizing I want a stress-free externship month. So I'm asking myself to work extra hard this month of July to wrap up residency applications and ace my boards-NBDE-part-II (what a mouthful). Here I'm going to pretend Gretchen Rubin and I are best friends and that she reminded me about the Strategy of Clarity over lunch.


The whole point of working hard is to have fun, right? After all, all we have are relationships. This weekend I got to meet a newborn baby full of hair (most darling eyes), watch Inside Out with the boyfriend (survived without caffeine for the 10PM show!), and laugh over pizza with new/old friends. Being able to work hard in one moment so when I'm with loved ones, I'm able to fully embrace it (sans guilt and constant time-watching). Another moment of clarity.

  1. Hi Yesle! Congrats on making such a big decision. I hope is well. You crossed my mind. I just finished my first year of law school. Let's catch up soon. I'll be in Philly mid-July if you're around.

  2. Applying to your potential MBA programs out there can be a bit of a daunting task. You've probably been working for a few years, and with any luck you're also doing volunteer work and working to further yourself as an outstanding individual. residency thank you letters
