    Anyone out there receive his or her PGY-1 contract yet? Our dean led us to believe they'd be delivered fairly quickly to us after Match Day. Quickly? I don't know what that means, but I haven't heard a peep.

    Nothing here either! I know the position is mine, but I can't help but worry about the contract. Anyone else waiting? If we matched for PGY2 also, will we be signing contracts this year for 2003? Whats included in the contract package??? Housing guides, list of fellow interns and contact numbers??? Does anyone know? Can you tell I'm excited and anxiously waiting! :D
     
  4. I remember my contract took a couple of weeks to arrive. Your program will probably e-mail you first to confirm your adress. Congrats on your match.

Most programs send you a list of the interns/residents that matched into the program. This past month I've been getting a ton of information about housing, neighborhoods, real estate agents, etc. from my residency program. Of course they did practically make me sign my life over to them. I had to fill out about a billion application forms for all the potential sites I had to rotate through, get new letters of reference, sign a release for a background search by the police, get my MA medical license by May, etc. This was in stark contrast to my internship which didn't ask for nor did they give me much more info other than to show up at this address on so and so day. This probably had to do with the fact that they knew we were only there for one year.

    Stinky Tofu... Let me get this straight.... We dont sign our PGY2 contracts til the end of our internship year? :confused: Its wierd that you go through this whole match process a whole year in advance and you don't sign a contract until a few months before you start. I guess that the PGY2 position is tentative upon successful completion of internship!

    During your PGY1, did you communicate with Harvard about your progress? I'm doing a year of medicine before I start PM&R at Baylor-Houston. What's expected of pre-PM&R interns, how often should I communicate with Baylor during that year (do they pretty much leave you alone?), what steps are you taking in preparation for the transition? Any advise would be appreciated!

    Haven't gotten any contracts, but did receive a list of all of the other interns. Also came with a sheet to pick specialty rotations and vacation dates.

    I received BOTH PGY-1 and 2 contract sheets yesterday. These were both from the House Officer department. One curious thing tho--I haven't received a congratulatory email, letter, phone call from either program that I matched into. Bizarre, huh. But I have the contracts, so I guess everything is fine.

    I received my contract at my US address on Monday, and was subsequently FedExed to me, reaching me today.

    I'm going to be giving the FedEx people a LOT of business <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    I received my contract a couple of days ago. Also coming through the mail/email, they've sent me the list of incoming interns, vacation and specialty rotation request forms, the "housestaff guide", and health insurance stuff. :)

    Perhaps the process is "program specific". I got the congrats e-mail the day I matched, then yesterday requests for schedule and vacation. No contract yet. I'd love to know who I'm working with, I hope they send a list soon. Anyone going to Brooklyn for EM? :cool: :cool: :cool:

    :) Received Congrats phone call from Residency Co-ordinator and letter from Pd. Received contract 4 days later. Surprised as salary had gone up which is nice (although it's not all that great to begin with, except the cost of living is low where the hosp.is located), have to have state license by July,lots of forms to fill out, had to give vacation dates and told me starting date is June 24,2002, one full week of orientation. Sent me some info on Real Estate...plan to go there next week and try to figure out where I want to live...the PD said I have to live 10/15 mins from hosp. Hope I can afford it!!! Small town so I should be ok. I'm use to lots of traffic and 45/60 mins to get anywhere, so the lack of traffic should be a plus.Looking forward to getting started. Although I am a golf nut so we'll see, and of course it's that dreadful surgery training!!!

    I am sure it does depend on the program. I have received so many emails from either the PD, chief, upper years, attendings. . . since the match. I got my contract Wednesday, 27. There was no information on health ins, or any of the jazz that comes along with the job.

    I do have a question for those whom have completed an internship year; when you go to another hospital in the same state, do you have to apply for another training number?? I am confussed on this issue?? :confused:
