Preparation for Intern Year

5 years 9 months ago #34195 by pbehrens
Fellow orthopods,

I matched in ortho and want to do some light preparation before starting intern year. Any recommendations on books I should read, things I should do, etc before residency?

Any advice appreciated.

Dont do any thing till you start your residency.

I was given the same advise last year when I matched and I did not listen.
Ortho is a different world all together. No matter how much you know Ortho from medical school, you will not comprehend til you start working in orthopedics.

Something I did which was fruitful was to work on my orthopedics research. I ended up finishing it in PGY1, presented it in many places. This goes right into your CV. You can focus on studying, learning and exams when you enter as an intern.

Take a break, go gymming, running, do something you like, travel. But dont read any books.
If you really have to, then Netters Concise ortho review atlas is a good choice.
