I was reading an article today regarding attrition rates during residency. The programs surveyed all had at least 25% IMGs. The overall rate was 3.6% for US grads and IMGs. It seems surprising that anyone would get to that point and quit - although the numbers also included terminations. Does anyone out there have any knowledge or stories of residents quitting or being fired without transferring to another program? What did they do after leaving? What did they do about loans?
