Match Day Gift Guide

Match Day is just around the corner! Finding the perfect gift to celebrate the accomplishments of that new resident in your life may seem daunting. We asked several medical students what they would not only want, but would constantly use throughout their medical journey. If you’re struggling to find that practical gift that your physician will love, look no further. Here is a list of the top 10 things to get your loved one for Match!

1 LAB COAT

New degree, new credentials! A high quality lab coat is the ultimate symbol of accomplishment for a new doctor. You can make this gift even more personal and meaningful with customized embroidery of his or her name, title, or logo...it's the closest they can get to wearing their diploma.

2 SLEEP MASK

Anyone in medicine is no stranger to lack of sleep. Whether it’s working night shift, late night studying, or just an inconsistent sleep schedule, a comfortable, light blocking luxury sleep mask can be a life saver.

3 SCRUB SET

Though you can’t buy confidence, you can buy a new pair of scrubs… and that’s almost the same thing. Medelita Scrubs are designed for maximum durability, functional performance, effortless professional style and not to mention are the only scrubs that can be washed on hot!

4 SNACK SUBSCRIPTION

One thing medical students learn early on is that you never say no to free food. As a new resident doctor, that lesson still applies. While always on the go, gifting a snack subscription is a thoughtful way to care for your physician.

5 SCRUB JACKET

Whether they’re on shift or running errands, our scrub jackets are the perfect way to keep your loved one warm in cold environments and comfortable in heated, high pressure situations.

6 ERASABLE PENS & NOTEBOOK

We’ve all heard jokes about illegible doctor handwriting. Help them help you by gifting some high quality erasable pens.  To go along with that new erasable pen, this hand stitched, leather bound notebook looks professional and feels functional with its highest quality writing paper to prevent bulky or heavy pockets when making rounds.

7 STETHOSCOPE & HOLDER

 

They won’t miss a beat with a new Medelita Sensitive Stethoscope, that is handcrafted and engineered in Germany with a patented dual-membrane sound chamber geometry, making it the ultimate cardiology stethoscope.  To go with that new stethoscope, get your new graduate a stethoscope holder. Sometimes wearing a stethoscope around the neck all day just isn’t realistic. Having a waistband holder is perfect for those who are on the go.

8 COMPRESSION SOCKS

There is no age limit on compression socks. Always being on their feet, getting luxury compression socks that can reduce fatigue while also aiding fast recovery seems almost too good to be true.

9 FACE MASK

Wearing a face mask, especially in medicine has become the new norm… but sometimes that ear pain is real - especially when working long shifts.  This is exactly why our Founder Lara Francisco, PA-C spent almost a year researching what the top "asks" were in other face masks. The result is our extraordinary face mask designed to be extremely soft, anti-fogging, contoured to stay in place, with adjustable ear loops and a filter pocket for optional enhanced protection. 

10 TO-GO COFFEE CUP

No matter what time of day, caffeine is essential in the field of medicine. Having a to-go cup that can stay warm or cold for long periods of time, especially on those long shifts, can make all the difference. 

11 BONUS

But in all honesty, the best gift of all is being sent home early to catch up on those zzz’s.
