Rejection from United Health Services Hospital and Suny Upstate after LOI.
Looking at no interviews, 15 rejections via eras and 7 via e-mail
Also, Eras has been down for me for the past 2 hours
you forgot St Elizabeth ohio
I think im almost at the 30 mark for rejections
no iv yet for me either
I think there was also a st elizabeth program in Boston, MA that sent out rejections but I have not received one yet from them so Im hoping they might save me as well
Has anyone actually received a rejection from Medstar Washington Hospital Center? Or has anyone applied to that program but not received the Acknowledgement email today?
I'm asking because I don't know if I should continue to hope for an interview (like if they don't send rejections, then how would we know?)
Still hoping for some IVs with only rejections so far
Suppose I matched to Pathology program, can I switch or transfer to IM within first year? Did you know anyone did that and what the requirments?
How many spots were left?
You would have to re apply the following year and now you would have to get a letter in good standing from the pd of the pathology program that you are abandoning.
Do you mean transfer or whole new residency application?
Congratulations! Credentials if you don't mind?
Hey Hushhush88, is this the primary care one or the categorical one?
you apply for IM just like you are this year through ERAS and NRMP, it can be hard to do so given that you will be in the middle of your pathology internship during interview season and you will have to convince your path PD to write you a letter as Rokshana mentioned and also find a good explanation for why you want to switch specialties
also I could be wrong but have heard that switching specialties can be hard as you are using up more money for your training because you'll be needing an extra year's salary, however 4 years of path -> 3 years IM = 4 years of total residency so it may be okay as you woulda spent 4 years in path, but now you're doing 1 year path + 3 IM = 4 years anyways if that made sense... can anyone else verify this? is it frowned upon to use up more money for residency training ??
I am only considering plan B. I did not get any interviews and I am old graduate with second attempt. Also another option to apply to double specialties in SOAP.
How do you know it is the primary track? My invite didn’t specify
gotcha haven’t interviewed there yet, best of luck!
It’s been so quiet this 2 weeks for me. Yes, I ignore the rejections.
IV Texas Tech El Paso
I know, I used to check my email every 2 minutes, now I'm checking my email only maybe 3 times a day :O
Guys, is there any point to applying to programs now?
Go to their website and see their deadlines, if you need more interviews then apply quickly, it still isnt too late.
Best of Luck

^ + I would say call them and see if they are still reviewing applications, many are done reviewing so make sure you're not wasting your money on programs that full
yeah, I might just do that... can't afford to waste anymore money!
If anyone wants a partner to practice interview. Message me. (You can bounce ideas off me)
The reason as to why I'm doing it
- I'm really frustrated sitting at home. But at least this way I'll get to learn a thing or two and meet people who are from a similar background.
1. I am not trying to steal your information or use you. I'm pretty stupid when it comes to that.
Zero IM interviews so far. Sucks.
How many questions PDs normally ask? eg is it okay that if don't ask a more than1 question?
And if IV doesn't go well with PD, so does it mean to have zero chance in that program and should rank at the end?
Hope you get one. Good luck. Pray for all of us I don't know what PDs are looking for
Please do answer my questions guys. I'm so stressed
Typically any interview lasts 15-20 min. But it can go longer and shorter depending upon the day, the program, mindset of PD, how the discussion is going. It's totally ok if they don't ask more than 1 question. That, in most cases, means program mostly ranks candidates on the basis of credentials and CV.
Even if you are sure your interview did not go well with PD, you still have chances. How was your other interview in that program? I am not sure, but Associate PD also has some say in the ranking so all is not bad if your one interview did not go well. There are lots of variables in this case and no one can give you a definitive answer. Work on your interview skills, learn from mistakes in this one and perform better in the next.
Hey! Don't worry. The folks on this forum are very supportive. Just hang in there. Someone will answer. I don't know the answer. But I am sure someone does.
There is no such thing as a transfer.
Anyone interview at Brooklyn hospital center yet? Heard they ask medical questions?
Not really... programs will know why you are applying so late... programs can have a B list... not do much the other way around...
how long did the interview last? I've heard that at some programs, sometimes each interviewer only spends as little 5 mins each with the person as they may have time restraints
sometimes 1 question is all that's needed as the interview is more like a conversation, so it flows without asking more formal questions, and more like a informal chatter
With PD, it was like 2 mins. maybe he didn't like me, but ethically I think, PDs should take interviews because we work so hard to prepare for IV and they should understand that 1 question doesn't judge us. This was my first IV and maybe I'm wrong and I m not a great candidate but still, I felt that PDS should think that candidates work so hard for IVs and to be a physician in the USA.
No, he didn't. He just asked 1 question and it was like 2 mins and that's it. I had IVs in my home country and they were so different.
Hey! Been a while since i've been here. I thought I'd update everyone. To answer your questions

Hi, Has anyone heard (invites or rejection) from Georgia Internal Medicine Residency Programs (excluding memorial health and AU/UGA)? Thanks
rejection from Wellstar Kennestone a week ago
hi Guys anyone interviewed at st mercy oakland pontiac ? What was the interview like !. Thanks
is it a right time to call programs and showing interests or should wait? do you guys call co-ordinator or PD?
Anyone with interview at Jamaica Hospital NY? Is it more like general interview or clinical questions are asked during interview? thanks in advance
you do realize that interviewing applicants is not the only job a PD has, right? (S)he has to review ALL those applications, and interview EVERY invited candidate on interview day, as well as the daily work that is required of the PD with the existing interns and residents and the department with all the meetings and the patients in their clinics...
if you let that entitlement show during the interview, people will notice. First impressions are made within the first 30 seconds of an interview...
Yes. I know. Thanks for the answer. I know its hard and they work too hard. It was my first here so I didn't know how they do and I was really upset. But I can't do anything now. So, waiting!
Have you applied this year? How many Interviews so far?
I agree. Also, When interviewing hundreds of candidates, they are used to hearing mostly the same song over and over. Have a different song or at least a different beats to grab their attention upfront and you will sail smoothly.
