    Hello All,

    For those who have matched in recent years, how many honors grades (out of 7 major clerkships...Medicine/Surgery/Peds/OB-GYN/Psych/Neurology/Outpatient Med/Others) did you have during 3rd year?

    Thanks so much!

    I took neurology as a 4th year so it didn't matter for me. I high-passed (our school does a H/HP/P/LP) medicine and family medicine. H on the rest.

    I think the bottom line is you have to honor surgery, and ideally make AOA. Some plastic surgery programs weigh honors in medicine more than others.

    Medicine was my first clerkship and the only one I didn't honor. I'm not AOA. I'd also echo that honoring surgery IS A MUST.

    There was one program where the PD told me that a honors in family medicine actually hurt your application.
