I'm coming from a mid-tier midwest anesthesia program with in-house pain department, will be applying in a few months for Pain. I don't feel certain that my home program would keep me just because the spots are limited, although I'd be happy to stay. I'm wondering how many applications/interviews I should plan for (especially financially). Any thoughts? Thanks!

Apply broadly. Interviews will likely be the limiting factor both from who wants to see you and time away from residency.

20 apps and 10 interviews is probably a safe place for most.
