How common is it in FM residency to get dismissed?

Are there test requirements you need to pass during residency other than Step 3/Level 3? ITE or something? what is this?

Just asking because there seem to be 1 missing PGY2 at our FM residency program.

Thanks.

There are lots of reasons people leave a program other than being dismissed. Not fitting in with the program, personal/family issues, tired of medicine, don’t like the speciality, and many more.

Unless it looks like a trend I would not put much stock into it

One of my co-residents left because he decided he wanted to be in a different specialty and managed to score a spot in an Ivy League residency program in his specialty choice. That's just one example.

I wouldn't worry about it too much.
