SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Any past residents had to do this due to scheduling conflicts of different residencies and time allowed for you to take off from rotations or work. I imagine it could definitely burn a bridge and wouldn't want to do that myself. But it seems like most of the programs interview around the same time and with people interviewing at different sites and having to take time off from rotations or work to do such I'm guessing it has happened before. Anyone know of anyone that has not been able to go to an interview due to timing scheduling conflicts? Also should this factor into how many programs you apply to as you don't want to overwhelmed or not have enough time to do all your interviews?
