Although it's not yet the great day of July 1, when the wheel of academia cycles around and everything begins anew, it's the time of year when the newly-minted interns have probably started hitting the wards. Welcome to the big white coat leagues! Keep a granola bar or two in those pockets!
Others are looking at completing residency at the end of the week, which means fellowships, new jobs, and hopefully some well-deserved time off. Next life stage! Maybe a real salary, finally, unless you're in the fellowship boat and have deferred money for endless overqualification.
And for those still in the trenches of training, you at least get to increment the PGY# flair. A change of schedule, at least, and some new rotations. And one year closer to being done!
Other medical professionals, I know much less about your educational calendar, but congratulations to those of you passing milestones as well.
Regardless of where you are and whether you're counting numbered years or sitting pretty post-training, this is a time of year to reflect on where you are and give high-fives all around.
