The CFMS Transition to Residency Guide draws on the experiences of current residents and available literature to support medical students in the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate medical education. It is designed to be an accessible resource for answering common questions transitioning learners initially have and provide a foundational knowledge-base on various aspects of residency. This guide addresses topics such as CBME, mentorship, teaching, and pursuing research during residency as well as offers suggested resources for both wellness and financial management.
