    Advertisements



    i began surgery prelim in 2012 and continued this past year. i just found out i was accepted into the orthopedic surgery residency!!! without the medical education sjsm provided me i would've spent 5+ years doing appendices before i started my dream fellowship. sjsm advisors pointed me in the direction of img friendly programs that offer both general and orthopedic surgery RESIDENCIES. going to the islands was worth every cent.

    Congratulations. That's excellent news and I aam happy to hear this. So SJSM "advisors" actually pointed you in the right direction? Because I thought most of them were MBA or other business majors.... Anyway , which state did you obtain ortho? That was my dream career until I ddecided to switch my ortho for something more reasonable for Carib grads.
