March 18, 2016 was Match Day and, since then, we have been celebrating Kathy May’s exciting match. Her successful result was the culmination of five years of hard work in medical school. But amidst the celebration was also reflection. Match Day marks the closing of one chapter of our lives and the anticipation of the next. On this occasion, Kathy May wrote a powerful and touching reflection on the bittersweetness of her medical school years and posted it onto our blog. She wished to share her story of growth and loss with her family, friends, fellow medical professionals, and anyone else who has lost loved ones. Last month, it was published by Mogul, a social media publishing platform for professional women. Yesterday, it appeared on KevinMD.com, a health blog featuring all things medical.
