    There are numerous posts about switching residencies on SDN, but many deal with it on a case-by-case basis. Is there some general authoritative source on this, similar to "Iserson's Guide to Getting into a Residency?"

    I imagine this source would cover topics like when to make a decision, how to talk to a PD, how to find a new position, other factors to consider, etc.

    Thanks!
     
  2. I don't think so.

    Are you talking about changing within the same field, or applying to a different specialty altogether?

    There's no book that I know of, or other source.
    This is probably because relatively few people switch, and it's basically something you have to do on your own. FindAResident is a good source to look for open spots, IMHO. It tends to be the most up to date, vs. some of the other internet sites which actually cost more.

    There is a wealth of information about switching specialties on this forum.
    My advice, have a good reason and don't tell anyone @ your present program.
