Surgery prelim positions post-scramble

Postby kenyon29 » Tue Dec 18, 2007 7:57 am

I'm coming to terms with the fact that there probably won't be any categorical positions in surgery, so I'm turning my attention to prelim positions. My Step 2 CK results probably won't be back until May, so I'm obviously not going to make the scramble. Do you know if there are any surgical prelim positions that go completely unmatched (even after the scramble) and might be looking for someone this late? I really appreciate the help.

There will be some, but not too many. I estimate that the number will be in the range of 10-20.

Most of them will be available in the end of March when all the "two-seat butts" made their choices and some of them got cicked out for not playing by the rules.

The second wave will be in May-June when some of matched residents will realize that they are not going to get their visas on time.
