I've heard many stories that the primary candidate at residencies have sometimes either refused to attend, didnn't pass the boards or was too sick to attend. In these cases, the person who stuck their face in front of the residency director or was on the wait list got accepted.lxaly said:Hi, I am in special program that will graduate in September.
wandering if there are any residnecy still not been filled.
I like primary care, ocular disease, retina, cornea, CL etc.

There is a list of unmatched positions; and contact information for those programs. If you are really interested, contact them ASAP - they may still be interested and might make special arrangements for you to do a program from Sept to Sept rather than the typical July 1 to June 30,
More likely, the applicant backed out at the last moment.ML1983 said:Could that also mean the applicants weren't qualified enough? I'm assuming they are not going to take just "anyone" that applies.
that is crazy that those two spots are going unfilled! if the people back out do they have alternates or can others apply or do they just go unfilled for a year?Hines302 said:
