Intern year swap?

    Hi everyone. I just have a little question...I am currently living in Bay Area California but was matched to a transition year spot in Boston. The training will start from the middle of this June. Because of family reasons (have two little ones with a full time working wife) I am looking to swap to somewhere in Northern California (even Oregon or Southern California will work). I would take either Prelim-IM or Surgery spots. If you happen to live in Boston Area but matched to programs in California, and are interested in swapping, please kindly let me know.

      Just to point out that even if you do find a "swapper", you are still bound by your match. The NRMP is the only entity that can waive your match commitment. Even if you find someone to swap with, and both PD's approve of the swap, the NRMP may deny any request to do so.
