Hi all, my query pertains to the chances of joining PGY2 neurosurgery programs after doing a preliminary year of general surgery, and if that's possible at all? I was told from a couple of my fellow colleagues that after doing a preliminary year of general surgery, I would have to apply to categorical neuro programs which would put me back into PGY1 and the prelim year wouldn't have much influence as far as joining competitive neuro programs goes. I was hoping to hear from anyone who may have had a similar experience. Your inputs are greatly appreciated!!!
