    to anyone who applie dto surgery program , pls advice

    Advertisements



    I am a prospective Residency candidate planning to do my residency in the year 2004. I am very keen in getting into a General Surgery position. I would be thankful to anyone who could spare a few minutes of their valuable time in guiding me. I am an International Medical Graduate currently in the process of getting my ECFMG certificate. I have scored a 91 in my Step1 and am preparing for my Step2.

    I would greatly appreciate if you can help me out by advising me of my chances/possibilities of getting into a Surgery position. Also it would be highly valuable if you can share some of your Application & Interview experiences with me.

    Looking forward to getting a reply. Any Advise/inputs would be highly appreciated.

    surgery

    I've been in contact with a graduate from CAHSU, and he did his residency in surgery. he worked 100-120 hrs/week at times. he loved it, but it was extremely hard on the family. after a year he switched to family practice... then the law changed, they've regulated it down to 80 hrs/week max.
