Preparing for Residency
The thought of starting residency is exhilarating. This is the moment you have worked toward for so many years, the reason why you left home and moved to the Caribbean. You will have the knowledge and power to save patient lives and improve their quality of life. You will finally be calling the shots.
But the thought of starting residency is also daunting. You will be the primary physician responsible for patients' lives, sometimes when you are alone at night in the hospital. Every decision is a major decision. Even more, some say a resident's reputation is forged at the beginning of their residency. By preparing yourself from now, you can allow yourself to become a strong and competent resident who can take on the challenging environment of the hospital.
Don't let the stress of your upcoming residency start date ruin this moment for you. With our help, you can feel more confident and prepared to hit the ground running on day 1.
