Perhaps those in the interview circuit would be more knowledgeable than me. But, its seems that I hear from the grapevine that anesthesia residencies big and small are all expanding their number of spots again now that american grads are so interested. I would have thought they would have gotten smart after the mid 90s fiasco (w/ nobody going in) to be prudent about this rapid expansion. This seems to only to help ensure that I will have a harder time finding a job in 4 years. I know that other specialties like derm, ent, and ortho all seem to do an excellent job of limiting their numbers. I would like to hear more from the interviewees this year on this issue.
