I tried and failed for a spot in an EM program this year and scrambled into a sugery prelim at my home program. And it's, well, weird. While I loved my M3 sugery rotation and even did an extra trauma surgery AI my M4 year, I always planned on going straight into EM and so all my resources are EM-based, not surgery. There's a slight chance that I'll want to stay in sugery, but I'll most likely re-try for an EM spot next year. That being said, I want to make the most of my year in surgery and any tips would be greatly appreciated. I don't even know what books I should buy at this point. And when do folks in prelim spots take Step 3? As you can see, I'm a n00b. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
