Surgery residency

Postby peecee » Fri Mar 16, 2007 12:05 pm

Hi Anatolyk,
I am a new member of the forum. I am really very upset. About me, I am post-graduate in General Surgery from India. I passed in 2004. I AM AN OLD graduate of 2000. I applied to almost all places in US. I also applied to IM, TY, FP AND Prelim. Surgery to almost 166 programs. I got interview in 5 programs, 3 in IM and 2 in TY but none in Surgery. Neither I matched nor got position in scramble. Reasons I know. Bec, I have low score in Step-2, 77 but I have decent score in step-1 i.e. 88. In interveiws, they told me you have 5 yrs. PG experience in Surgery so why u have applied in IM. You will do good in Surgery rather in IM. I think this is the reason they didn't rank me. I have LORs from community surgeon practioners. I did 2 months of observership in Surgery in Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland. I have 1 research paper on my name in US and 1 publication in Indian Journal. I am Permanent resident.

I need advice what should be my strategy for next year. I don't want to give up my surgery option. I have planned for doing 1 year of prel. or TY in IM OR Surg. to have 1 year of clinical experience on my credit to get entry into Surgery program. What should I do now? Pl, give suggesstions.

Preliminary surgery is typically easier to get.

You may be too fast with conclusions. I really doubt the reason is in your scores. I know a lot of people getting into prelim surgery with scores in 70's. Look at your application and see how well is it addressing your specialty needs. Show it to as many people as you can and then analyze the feedback. Don't jump to a conclusion based on one person's view. Just use them as a pivot for your own analysis.

A standout amongst the most vital parts of surgery of the ear is that the outcomes end up being regular looking. This kind of strategy is utilized for an assortment of reasons, and a great deal of the reasons are because of birth deserts. On the off chance that you consider the human body, you will acknowledge how complex it is. At the point when a child is conceived, there are a huge number of things that could turn out badly. One of these things includes the ears. The ears in infants may not grow right; in any case, this is not amazingly normal. Most infants are conceived totally ordinary and solid. On the off chance that a tyke is conceived with a noticeable ear issue, the youngster can in the end have surgery of the ear to settle this issue. This is not a methodology that should be possible promptly, in light of the fact that specialists don't care to do it until the point when the tyke is at the age where his ears will be full developed. Just prepared specialists should finish techniques of this nature since it takes mastery to offer regular looking outcomes.
Thanks& regards,
