I've heard that general surgery residencies have become less competitive over the last few years. Is this true, and if so, to what extent? Why do you think gen. surgery has lost its appeal? Just for the fun of it, lets try to rank the various specialties in order of most competitive to least. I think it goes something like this: 1) Orthopedic Surgery 2) Dermatology 3) Neurosurgery 4) ENT 5) Opthalmology 6) Urology 7) General Surgery 8) Anesthesiology 9) Internal Medicine 10) Family Medicine 11) Pediatrics 12)Psychiatry What do you all think? Please don't go gettin all P'd off, this is just for fun, K? Later all USA RULES!!!!!!!!!
