    http://safetynetsflorida.org/wp-content/uploads/Jan-28-IHS-Report-PDF.pdf Should this be concerning for any of us medical students interested in specialties that will have a much greater supply than demand in 2025? For example, emergency medicine is supposed to have a supply of 3220 and a...

    Perio Residencies with lots of funding? Advanced techniques?

    Which perio residency programs come to mind when you think of a program doing lots of exciting new procedures or more advanced techniques? Things like AOO/Wilckodontics?

    Residents getting their own labs??

    I heard from a friend who is nearing completion of an MSTP program that an older gal from his school was offered her own lab space and research staff to come to their institution as a resident.

    NIH OxCam Program, Track 3--Do MSTP schools dislike this?

    Based on the figure below, I'm curious if the track 3 NIH MD/PhD pathway might but you at a disadvantage when applying to dual MD-PhD programs? My reasoning is that, if you spent your PhD somewhere else, what incentive is there for the med school to pay for your tuition if you will not be...

    Funding opportunities for Masters degree?

    I applied and was interviewed for a PhD program at my top school with my top adviser and was offered an unfunded Masters slot. Needless to say, I'm a bit disappointed at this and feel like it's a constellation prize. Still, I'm seriously considering accepting the offer because the work done in...

    Advice on finding undergrad research funding?

    I completed a research internship over the summer that was funded by my college; however, this funding is a one-time thing (you can't apply twice). I have discussed with my lab to return for this coming summer; however, my PI isn't known to pay students. Basically I have to find my own funding...

    Repeat intern year and residency funding.

    To the short of it, I was at PGY-1 in a categorical residency and had to leave due to some family crises. I left about 8-9 months into my intern year.

    Basic vs Full Funding at UCSF

    Hi everyone. Wanted to know if any students in the UCSF/SFSU program have insight about basic vs. full funding. I am assuming I won't be able to get much in grants or scholarships once I put in my parents' income for full funding. In fact I think it might do me worse to put in their data...

    I received an offer from a clinical psychology PhD program that has lower than average funding that is only guaranteed for only 3 years (though apparently most students receive funding for 4 years). The funding is an issue because I am not a US citizen so I wouldn't be able able to apply for...
