This book is an excellent, concise guide to the competitive and convoluted process of obtaining a residency position--ie, what all medical students must do to become practicing physicians in the US. Few medical schools prepare their students to navigate this process well, but Dr. Clarke and her co-authors go above and beyond in covering every step with just the right amount of detail. There are many "unwritten" rules for applying to residency and it can be overwhelming, especially for students who may be focused on simply surviving medical school. Yet, the match process is so important because it is literally what determines the area of medicine or specialty in which a newly graduated doctor will practice. If you are a medical student, parent of a medical student, spouse of a medical student, or in any way invested in someone's medical education, buy this book!

I gave this book as a gift to my daughter's pre-med roommate and it was very much appreciated. This book contains practical insights and considerations to help keep students on track as they embark on their medical education journey. She said it was like having a mentor in her pocket and will be referring back to it for many years.
