This varies incredibly from (a) specialty to specialty, (b) program to program, and (c) applicant to applicant.

No one can give you a realistic estimate. Be patient.

I got interview invites anywhere from <24 hours of submission through the middle of December. But yes, there is a huge variability from specialty to specialty (a number don't send out any invites until October or later).

Back in the day (just so we're clear, most of you were still in high school then), my interviews offers started the day after submission and my last one was offered in January. So roughly that timeline.

[email protected]'m not sure I understand why you're so nervous. You've been through this process before so you should know it pretty well. More importantly, you've completed a residency in probably the only medical specialty that won't get bent over in the coming healthcare funding apocalypse. You could go out tomorrow, rent an office in some drab office park, hang out a shingle, spend a couple grand on marketing yourself and watch the cash (actual cash, not insurance collections) roll in. I'm not questioning your motivation to do a 2nd residency, but on the off chance that doesn't work out for you, you're going to be fine.

When I applied to psych and had all of my LORS in, I got invites fast, I applied to ten DO programs and only got one invite- they invite EARLY
, I REALLY want to also practice FP as well, hence the anxiety. There's way more to life than $. It's happiness as well. I LOVE psychotherapy btw, so I won't be making all that much, but I REALLY want to practice both, I so miss the "rest" of medicine. Applied to ten MD programs. (I REALLY don't want to move, so I didn't apply to a lot of programs.) I also don't want to do a cash only practice, I don't like the idea personally. Thanks, I will just be neurotic and check my email constantly:).
