    What does the typical attending schedule looks like through the week?

    To preface this whole conversation, I know this will vary from group to group and you can choose between what you want to do, get paid, and live. I've been asking around a lot and talking to various OB's but not a large sample or in depth and I haven't found a whole lot on reddit or sdn so I'll...

    Reality of this profession

    I'm a non-trad who completed a post-bac in order to apply to Med Schools. I've been drowning myself in SDN forums as well as talking to other physicians on their lifestyle after the arduous process of Med School + Residency. For me, this path is not about money. Making 250k vs 350k is no...

    How would you prepare to be an EM phys?

    So I know I have a few years before I really need to think about this, but I have some ideas of specialty and most aren’t too crazy (psych, peds, PCP). But the one thing I really thought I wanted was EM. After starting school though, I just feel like I would be totally unprepared. I work well...

    LOR from training physician

    I was just wondering if there was any sort of requirement that the DO letter of recommendation needs to be from an attending or non-training physician. I am shadowing a DO who is currently in a fellowship program, but wasn't sure if she could still write my letter or not.

    Resident totally messed up gyn exam performed on me. How big of a deal is this?

    Hello all! This is a throw-away account for reasons that will soon become obvious. I have been a member of SDN for over three years, and would truly value this community's input on a very private/ painful/ sensitive issue. Today, I had a routine gyn/well-woman check up. Everything went great...

    Hello everyone, I recently got accepted into GFU and am really considering attending the program. There is little information online/from others that I can find.
