    thank you to everyone who has been providing any sort of insight regarding my possible switch into anesthesiology.

    i had previously done a two and half week rotation in anesthesiology during my fourth year of medical school at an outside institution. i was bored at that time, not sure how much of that was being part of disorganized rotation.

    does anyone have any suggestions on how i can sort of gain more insight into this field, ie. have a second look at anesthesiology during my residency (i am a categorial medicine) resident. my next rotation is a consult month, so i wont have call or work weekends. thanks again for your help and feel free to e-mail me at [email protected]

    in flux, i wish i could take an elective. our program director already has our schedule done for the year. i am leary about approaching him about anesthesiology unless i know for sure i want to switch. can't wait for intern year to be done...
