SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I am currently doing a PGY-1, and I am completely miserable. I can't go into all the details here. I have met with my program director several times, but the issues I'm having are not going to be resolved. This program has had residents quit in the past, and the ones that do stay have not been happy either. I have a job offer that I'm interested in, and I'm not sure if I should take it or try to stick it out. I have thought about the consequences of both scenarios and still can't come to a conclusion. I have listed pros and cons of each, and I still can't decide. I know it hinges on my future career plans, but I'm just so unsure about everything now, that I don't know what direction I want my career to go in. Has anyone on here ever left a residency program? Has anyone ever regretted doing a residency.........or not doing one? Mods, feel free to move if you think this should be in the residency forum. Thanks.
