A Post Match Debrief From recent Matchers

  • "This is the kind of book that should come with every admitted students package. Though this book is based on personal experience and reflection upon four years of school, the information provided is concise, funny, and sincere. It rang true with memories of my time in medical school."
    - James, Medical Intern, Stanford

  • "As an academic adviser to medical students, this book absolutely blew me away. After reading this book, I can definitively say that students will have more tools, strategy, and choices when it comes to residency application time. I've ordered a copy for every single admitted student in the class of 2019."
    - Anonymous
    Associate Dean of Students
  • "...includes anecdotes and info on surviving the basic science courses, what actually matters in medical school (grades, extracurriculars, research, etc.) Funny as well as informative. Truly a must have for every medical student."
    - Allison J. 4th year medical student

  • "I would recommend it without reservation to anyone who is thinking about med school, accepted in med school, or currently in med school. My academic advisers at school were amazing, but this book - because it's written by students - is an invaluable supplement."
    - Mike
    Surgery Intern, Mass General
  • " ... filled with information that is just as important but you will not find in any other books. This is peer information from students that just matched. It is a must have especially for third and fourth year students."
    - Michael
  • "Having up to date advice from students who recently went through the matching process really gave me insight into how to differentiate myself from the thousands of students in the same boat."
    - Jason
  • "It's easy, quick, and funny to read. I wish I had this when I was looking at going to medical school!"
    - MDFFEMT
    via Amazon
  • "After referring this to others (immediately I might add), they too praised the breadth of knowledge throughout the book."
    - Deez N.
  • "Medical School and the Residency Match does a great job of helping Med students get well ahead of their peers. Since it is written by matriculated students, there is a great amount of insight, call-outs, and watch-outs. I would strongly recommend people take a look at this far in advance of their graduation date."
    - Nicholas
  • "Really just a great and well written book. ... an absolute must buy if you're interested in the subject"

    - Tyler
  • "This is the kind of book that should come with every admitted students package. Though this book is based on personal experience and reflection upon four years of school, the information provided is concise, funny, and sincere. It rang true with memories of my time in medical school."

  • "This book is good for anyone: premeds, newly accepted students, med students of all years, academic advisors, and even parents or significant others interested in the complexity, ridiculousness, and fun during medical school."
    - James
  • "I love this book ... I'm so glad somebody finally wrote a book from the perspective of a medical student. It was EXTREMELY helpful to have advice from med students of different backgrounds and academic records."
    - tsana
  • "Super helpful resource for a very complex process. This book gives insight into topics I didn't even think about when applying for residency. Definitely a must-read for any med student at any point in the process, from first year through 4th."
    - anon

    - dr m
