Stress can be intense, even if you’re just applying to a non-competitive program.

If you could go back and change anything during pre-clerkship or clerkship, what would you change?


What did you do in your four years of medical school that you found to be the most helpful during the CaRMS process?

Talking to attendings about their ideas on how to get the job you want. Even if it’s not in their area — they have thoughts and ideas. But taking it all with grains of salt.
