SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi everyone: Does anyone know if its possible to get out of match?? Has anyone ever been or knows anyone who has ever been in this situation? I just matched in a categorical surgery at a good program in the west coast. However, after just returning from an 8 week rotation in Africa I decided that I do not want to do surgery. I am willing to fulfill my 1 year obligation to this program. However, maybe its better to inform them ahead of time and let them decide???
