And there was much rejoicing...

Lady M and I have been walking on air since finding out the Match results yesterday; I didn't anticipate how exciting all of this would be.

For those of you who like to read the notices in the paper the next day, the College of Medicine has the lowdown on this “strange mix of free will and predestination” featuring a shot of yours truly modeling the official Iowa Emergency Medicine Match Day jersey. Our very own Iowa City Press-Citizen also weighs in with an account of the proceedings. Finally, the UCSF-SFGH EM Residency Program has already posted pictures and bios of the inaugural intern class on their home page. (It's the first time that I've seen my name with those hard-earned initials after it -- even though it's still a few weeks premature).

Huge thanks to all of you for your support and good wishes this week and all along the trail. And keep watching this space -- there'll be a lot more news coming very soon....

It's obvious by that "cool" joke that they share your bad sense of humour, as well. =) This is EXCELLENT, Dr. Hippen.

Congratulations from Belgium, dr. Hippen ! (or can we still call you Ben ?)
We think that Megan will be very pleased with San Francisco !
Even if we never see you again, we wish you all the best for the future, it was really nice to have met you both !
