I doubt there is such a stat available. If there was, it would be news to me.Or are you asking how many people matched a traditional AOA internship?
I'm looking for that stat where it tells you all the DO schools, and the percentage of students that got their FIRST choice in matching an AOA residency program...sorry for my ignorance, I'm confused:
What do you mean intern PG1?
It comes out in JAOA in March of the following year. Stats from 2008 are in the 2009 Issue. The 2009 stats come out in 2010. I can't just give you the link anymore because it's password protected now.....I'm looking for that stat where it tells you all the DO schools, and the percentage of students that got their FIRST choice in matching an AOA residency program...sorry for my ignorance....
Yes, I believe so. Some programs, particularly those in radiology, derm, aneshesia, ophtho, and a couple others start at PGY-2. You have to do PGY-1 somewhere else as a transitional year, and I believe this internship year fills the same role.I was sort of under the impression that most AOA TRI's were filled by scramblers who did not match. Is this wrong?
So does one match into their residency for these specialties and their program mandatorily includes a PGY-1 transitional year?Yes, I believe so. Some programs, particularly those in radiology, derm, aneshesia, ophtho, and a couple others start at PGY-2. You have to do PGY-1 somewhere else as a transitional year, and I believe this internship year fills the same role.
Can you expand on this please? I'm not sure what the realignment is or how it affected AOA internships.....thx.Keep in mind, too, that the number of available TRIs has significantly decreased with the realignment. In 2008 there were only 350 matches for TRIs, but there were more than 700 the two preceding years.
I believe you could have answered this by searching or reading the 2009 match list thread. Since this step was neglected I request you spend your time researching what "molebut" is since that is the time I spent answering this post.Can a DO get any specialty any where he wants, any hospital he wants in America??? Like lets say I want to do anesthesiology, family practice, or surgery can I do it anywhere I want??? What factors affect this decision?
He's right though; you could easily find an answer to that by either researching online or searching these threads as its been mentioned several times.no one asked you to respond
Most of the uptight dudes on here will say "do a search". Well thanks "dick", I never heard of Google. You are sooo smart!lol I knew that post would receive bad news but I hate how premeds are so neurotic, sarcastic, and sometimes downright rude and I'm one of them but still I don't put someone down ever on SDN and the molebut thing ticked me off....whatever life goes on.
Studying? On a Saturday night? In undergrad in July?... hell no.. lolI don't take any offense at all, I just look at their stupid posts, and ignore it like nothing happened haha, because in the end, I'm going to ask whatever I want to ask and if you choose to respond, that's great...if you don't, no worries....
Why am I on this forum on a perfectly saturday night when I should be studying?!
Hahaha I don't mean to be that much of a "dick" but your question really was (and is) something you could have easily answered yourself. Haha the molebut thing came because I was playing balderdash with some friends at the time and I thought it was such a ridiculous word that I had to use it.the molebut thing ticked me off....
Us "dicks" that respond to various posts like that do so because well, simply put, its down right lazy not to look at the old search button for your answer first. Medicine is full of questions and sometimes you have to *GASP* search for the answers. If you think we are dicks now for asking you to search for an answer on an online forum you are in for a surprise when your attending asks you to read 10 journal articles and summarize them for him on morning rounds the next day.Most of the uptight dudes on here will say "do a search". Well thanks "dick", I never heard of Google. You are sooo smart!
There is nothing wrong with asking questions in a forum. That is the purpose of an open internet forum.
The fact that these guys have been lingering/members here for years and then insult a person that has less knowledge about a subject pertaining to your posted question is insulting.
And several of these DO students that are responding in here were rookies once too. Don't take any offense to it.
