    question aboout surgical residencies

    Advertisements



    Hey everyone,
    I'm interested in attending AUA and quite interested in surgery. I'm hoping that these two things aren't mutually exclusive. I just wanted to get some opinions and some ideas about what i should be expecting and what I will need to do while at AUA to be competetive as a surgical residency candidate in the US. Thanks!

    Study hard and score high on the step 1..But that advice can be followed no matter what school you attend. Surgeons are going to be the upper %'s of scores on step 1.

    Some places wont interview you just because you are a FMG. But boards scores above 240, good letters of recommendation, when you do your rotations make sure you do subinternships, and try to get involved in research.

    I already have 2 publications so I'm hoping that might help out. Does AUA offer a decent amount of research opportunites? I am primiarily interested in the neural bases of behaviors associated with learning and memory. I know its kinda specialized, but it would be ideal if that area of study were available.
