    TLDR: I'm applying to radiology this upcoming cycle but I'm worried that I will miss the OR and patients. This past week I had a ton of fun with robotic/laparoscopic surgeries, and an attending who knows me well told me my personality and surgery preferences point towards ENT or Urology. He...

    236 Step 1, 245 Step 2 a bunch of P,High Passes, and 1 Honor in Surgery and No research?

    Is the competitiveness of Diagnostic Radiology picking up again?

    So I'm a 4th year DO student looking to apply for DR residency but I'm not too sure of my chances of matching and if I should risk it.
