Hi everyone I was faced with the same situation as polyp. I am an IMG who is a PGY 3 at a University Program with USMLE scores in low 230s. I too have a green card now. When I applied last year I was on a H1 and ended up getting only 5 interviews and not matching. I was selected for Nutrition fellowship at Mayo for 2009 but chose to do Hepatology instead in one of the top academic centers in the country. I have 6 publications in peer reviewed journals although only 3 of them are GI. I have 2 abstracts and one poster presentation at a major GI national meet. This time I have applied to 30 programs and plan to add more if I am drawing blanks.
Got my second interview yesterday at Johns Hopkins.
As Midwest Res put it, hope for a great new year...and I guess the remaining calls will start after the first week of January.No calls so far......
I think we are now in Holiday interlude.....so if no calls...I'd just wish the regular folks here: COSCCN, HEMATEMESIS, POLYP, SKIP LESION and of course RECTALIZER
Merry Christmas folks and More Calls to come this New year
GI2010, I applied to both tracks, and they didn't indicate if they are interviewing for either specifically. Happy holidays everyone.Hi HEMATEMESIS and SKIPLESION:
may I ask if your Yale calls are from research track? I applied research track, no calls so far. Thanks.
LIST OF PROGRAM requiring supplementary APPLICATION I Know so Far:As Midwest Res put it, hope for a great new year...and I guess the remaining calls will start after the first week of January.
Additionally anyone has a list of programs that require supplementary material apart from ERAS, could you post it .....
