CaRMS is Scary

And kind of exciting. Yesterday was match day for Canadian med students graduating in 2009. That will be my match day in three years, and I'm realising that that time will go by quickly, and that on the day I'll have my future career determined to a great extent.

Best to focus on the present, though. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do. Surgery is interesting, areas of internal could be good. What do I want in terms of lifestyle, practice, and location? What *can* I get? It's hard to say. Fortunately I have lots of opportunities to try things out. But that CaRMS match day, though seemingly far off, requires preparation and lots of thought. Maybe it's best not to think about it too much, but I still seem to be (it's a decent enough way to avoid studying at least!).

Update: Ahem. CaRMS = Canadian Resident Matching Service.
