MSFC is just as excited for Match Day 2023 as you are, and we’re working hard to ensure medical students and residents are equipped to fight for access to safe and legal abortion and reproductive care.
If you don’t match on Match Day, remember that it’s not the end of the road. There are still options available to you. It’s natural to feel upset and frustrated, but it’s important to keep pushing forward and to not give up on your dream of becoming a doctor.
Many people have faced the same situation and went on to have successful careers. In fact, some have even suggested that not getting matched into residency can be a blessing in disguise, as it allows you to explore other areas of medicine that you may not have considered before.
If you’re feeling disappointed, you’re not alone. Visit this article from the American Medical Association (AMA) as a helpful guide to find advice and resources.
There are many paths to success and no matter what path you choose, it is important to keep working towards your goals. Remember that setbacks are a natural part of any journey, and it is how you respond to those setbacks that will define your success. Use this opportunity to reflect on your strengths and weaknesses, and work to improve them. Reach out to your mentors and colleagues for support, and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
Ultimately, Match Day is just one step in a long and rewarding journey. It’s important to stay focused on your goals and to not let disappointments hold you back. Keep working hard, stay positive, and don’t give up on your dreams. You can achieve anything you set your mind to.
