    Is there any info on the Web which provides a list of the various residencies and fellowships? I am looking to find out how many years it will take to complete the differnt specialties. Thanks for your help.

    The two places to look for general residency info is FREIDA (Fellowship and Residency Electronic Interactive DataBase) and medschool.com
    http://www.ama-assn.org/cgi-bin/freida/freida.cgi


    http://www.medschool.com/futuretense_cs/silo/studentedu/students.html

    FREIDA is the online version of the GME (aka the Green Book) which lists all of the programs in all of the specialties regardless of whether or not they participate in the NRMP Match (ie. like Neurosurgery programs which only participate in the Neurosurgery early match.). It is information provided by the residency programs so it is official information. It also gives information like length of training, # of slots available for PGY1, PGY2, PGY3, etc, # of applications received last year, # of interviews granted, etc. At the FREIDA site, click "GME and Main Institutional search" and then select your desired specialty and have fun!

    Medschool.com ( http://medschool.com ) is not official information because it is information provided by word of mouth and via the grapevine. Therefore, it may actually be more useful since they have discussion forums, FAQs and other great stuff for many specialties. Their site is kind of confusing to navigate because they offer so many services for so many people, but either go to the second link I listed above and click "student communities" or if that link doesn't work, go to the 3rd link I listed and click "students/educators" and then click "student communities". On the right hand column, you can select "specialty profiles" which will direct you to their FAQ as well as personal statements that worked and their discussion forum for that specialty.

    www.careermd.com is also a good source for post-grad info, although I think it is pretty much limited to MD sources
