So I'm a fourth year who really wanted to do surgery.. Planned on trying my hand at plastics. Did an away month and found it wasn't exactly what I had hoped. I felt things were pretty rigorous and wanted to consider something more lifestyle friendly like anesthesia. Did a rotation in that and didn't really care for it. As much as I fought it I've determined I'm one of those people that wants to do surgery (just not GS).. So here I am stuck in the midst of fourth year (past the deadlines) now having thoughts about ortho. Anyone have any thoughts on whether I should consider a prelim year or try and find a research spot? Stick my head in the sand and do nothing? Any thoughts/ideas/pep talks greatly appreciated.
