SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I've heard from residents in other programs (OB, Radio) that depending on the institution, there are sometimes great incentives/abilities for residents to buy a home in the area, even though they make a paultry living and already have a mortgage of debt. Has anyone heard of this at any ED programs? In your interview process, are most residents you talk to renting a place or have they bought a house? For those of you living on your own (i.e. no financial help from the parents or others) what is your plan? Thanks.
