    couples matching

    How many programs do we need to apply to? Assuming we interview well, will couples matching put us at an extreme disadvantage in terms of matching? We are hoping to apply in the northeast. Person #1: Applying Internal Medicine -Step 1: 247 -Clinical Grades: Mostly Honors -School: MD, low-tier...

    EM Utah Job Market

    I am a medical student strongly considering EM and am REALLY hoping to eventually practice in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm worried about the job market, however. It seems that many other states have numerous job listings, but Utah has very few. I realize that most jobs are likely not found via...

    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...

    Applying EM; Withold comlex scores?

    Hey guys, Applying ACGME - EM this cycle. Had pretty good stats up until this year: STEP1: 246; COMLEX 1: 689 STEP 2: TBD (8/29 Release); COMLEX 2: 512 Solid CV with multiple research/volunteer experiences, and believe my SLOE's will be all honors. Had a pretty steep drop from COMLEX 1 to 2...

    Hey everyone. Well, I've been reading SDN since 2010, when I entered college and for better or worse, this website has always been a resource I've come back to. Now, I'm in medical school, DO, and in my 3rd year. I'll be graduating next year, hopefully, in 2019. During that time AOA residencies...

    How does your practise look like if you finish the EM/IM/CC residency?

    Exactly what a head of this post ask. I somehow have a hard time imagining how you can do all of those at once.

    Does having a family during medical school mean anything during EM residency application/interviews?

    As a medical student looking forward to residency I'm realizing how important all the "extra-curricular" activities are. There are research experiences, volunteering, leadership, etc. on top of grades, rank and STEP scores. My question is this: does it mean anything to residency directors that I...

    Entering EM as an older graduate

    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...

    EM and OBGYN combined... is it possible?

    I knew a couple doctors who would rotated working in the ER with working up on the floor (mostly IM). But I've yet to see an ER/OF GUN mix. Is it even possible? And if so, how do I get there?

    How to be competitive for a top EM residency

    Its easy to see what the "average" accepted EM resident brings to the table in terms of Step1/2, research, etc. However, does anyone have a good grasp on what the guys getting into the TOP EM programs tend to have on their application that ultimately leads to them getting in??? Here's why I...
