Obgyn is one of the least desirable residencies. Go to a place you don't want to be. Go to a place that didnt fill. You will be with people that wanted to be surgeons but couldn't cut it. At least you'll be a doctor in the states... In the highest risk lowest reward field we have. The most vulnerable to litigation, and what should be the most fulfilling field we have (bringing new life into the world, keeping half our population healthy).

thanks for replying. So you mean to say that not many people opt for OBGY?Its easier to get it? Is it not worth it?
