So I matched into a 3 year program and a separate preliminary year in internal medicine. This prelim year does not give me the option of rotating with Anesthesiology in any capacity (OR, Pain, Surgical ICU, PACU, Preop Evaluation, etc). Is this a big deal? Is this uncommon? How many of you had no Anesthesia exposure during your intern year? Did it put you behind when you started your CA years? What do you think? Kind of wishing I had matched into prelim surgery instead considering they would have given me an Anesthesia month.
