Resources from AMA:

For Match 2015, members of the AMA Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) communicated with students and offered guidance during Match Week. And their support didn’t end there. Now that the Match has ended, the AMA-RFS asked students to send the most pressing questions they’d like residents to answer via Facebook. We reviewed each question from your peers and have compiled the best resident responses, so you can make the most of this new chapter in your medical career.
