    I wanted to ask for some advice...I'm hoping that somebody on this forum has been in a similar situation...

    My girlfriend and I ranked the same hospital first at the assurances of the anesthesia pd that we would match together (we did not couples match)...I matched in anesthesia there, and now she's starting a surgery residency in July that will be 200+ miles away (her third choice). I have ample elective time during my prelim year (at a different hospital), and am thinking of contacting the anesthesia pd at her program to see if I can do an elective there.

    Has anyone been in this situation before? Could the anesthesia pd at my girlfriend's hospital offer me a PGY-2 position (create an "unfilled" position - I see they have different #'s of residents each year )? Would they violate NRMP rules by doing so?

    Thank you for any response!
