Thinking About Residency...Scary.

So the past few days Jake and I have been talking about residency options. It looks like he is really leaning heavily toward a Med/Peds program (combination specialty including internal medicine - adults, and pediatrics). With that in mind we have been reading up on all 80 of the programs available across the country and have narrowed our options down to the following states:

Arizona

District of Columbia (also known as Washington, D.C. for all of us commoners)

Florida
Indiana
Kentucky
Missouri
North Carolina
Ohio (I know I know...yes, we ARE considering joining the "Buckeye Navy")
South Carolina

Tennessee

Texas
Virginia

Our top programs are definitely Vanderbilt (Nashville, TN), UofL (Louisville, KY), IU (Indianapolis, IN), UK (Lexington, KY), Duke (Durham, NC), and UNC (Chapel Hill, NC). These are in no particular order...although we would LOVE to be back in Nashville ASAP!

Jake begins preferencing in his fourth year beginning in the summer...exciting but very scary.
