Has anybody ever gone BACK to IM here from another specialty? What were your reasons? Do you regret it? How was the transition process (applying, interviewing, etc.)? How did you approach your former program about the idea? How did you go about interviewing? How did the new program treat you on interview day? And for the unsuccessfuls so far, what has been the biggest hurdle? How can those potentially be avoided? Basically, not being on a s**tlist. You can PM if you prefer not going public with your post. By the way, I'm a gas man who doesn't feel a good fit at this point. It's a lot more different than rotating as a student couple years ago. The 12 hour days with constant attention are getting to my guts, which rarely occurred with IM even over 30 hours. Sure I feel tired after 30 hr, but I always had help in a team setting. Or is PGY-2 a lot more different than being an IM intern?
