March 18th, 2020 by

The 3rd Friday of March is coming up very soon and tens of thousands of 4th-year medical school students across the United States will find out at 12 noon where they will go for their residency.  This means that they could be moving across the country or simply across town, it depends where the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) places them.  If your friend or family member is waiting on the results of this year’s match, you know first hand how nerve-racking this process is.  Where a doctor does their residency is the single most important step in their career. Adding to the tension, once they open the envelope that announces which residency program has matched with them they are legally bound to accept.

So get ready to celebrate this monumental occasion with a gift that reflects how proud you are of their accomplishment and one that will inspire them for the rest of their career.  Give a meaningful heartfelt gift, one that is personalized just for them.  You know what inspires them, gave them anxiety, or gives them hope, use this information to create a gift that is not only beautiful but meaningful.
