Thank you for visiting our website, MereResidency.com, a forum for resident physicians about life beyond residency. If you are a physician-in-training, this website is for you. We have created this website to better prepare you for the real world that lies beyond residency – the Big Leagues, if you will. We as physicians spend a lot of time training to become good doctors. Many nights of lost sleep, countless number of exams, and a lot of bad hospital food have only been a small part of the price we’ve paid for the privilege of taking care of patients, but some of us are woefully prepared for the real world that lies beyond residency. Not only is this impractical, but it’s anxiety-inducing. We want this site to be empowering and anxiety-busting so that you can free yourselves to focus on the patient care that you have spent so much time training to provide.
Contributors to the site include physicians in private practice and academia, as well as physicians-in-training like yourselves. Anyone who wants to share his/her knowledge and experience about the real world can post on the site. We are excited to see how talented physicians with different backgrounds will develop their ideas in this open-source forum for the benefit of resident physicians. We encourage you to post comments and questions, as well as articles of your own. The more we can share our knowledge and experience, the more powerful the website becomes.

The site is by no means finished; it’s an amalgamation of inchoate ideas from different people. Even though we are uncertain about the exact direction of the website, we want to draw in physicians from different stages of their careers and share various thoughts and ideas about how to be excellent real world physicians. We hope to shape the site with your help.
So far, we’ve tried to share our own knowledge and experiences as accurately as possible in the articles below. If we’re missing anything or you would like to hear more details, feel free to leave a comment, and we will add a new article or comment to cover it.
Look for future posts via Twitter or RSS feeds. Or sign up for the site using your email in the bottom right corner of this page.
