Discussion in 'Neurosurgery' started by tolsten, Jan 6, 2009.
He was an anesthesiologist looking to start PY-2 neurosurgery and had questions about funding. I'm guessing he got his answer.
Now I am curious what the question was.
I am military and matched to Family Medicine this year. So... does that block all hopes to NS in the future if I compete the FM training?
To answer your first question: The original poster was anesthesiologist currently doing his fellowship and was inquiring about switching residency to NS. He stated he would be in his late 30s after he completes NS residency. I think the main problem the OP would face was funding. There *may* be a few programs who would take someone who has already gone through residency. May be a resident could chime in on that.
For your second question:Switching from FM--->NS is *possible* but it depends on several factors. Age, board scores, funding, LORs etc.
