Thanks for all of your interest!

I matched at my #1 choice (and only place I ranked): PCOM General Surgery

It was quite a relief to match being that GS, especially at PCOM, was uber competitive this year...must be Dr. 90210 and Nip Tuck. ;)

Thanks for all the support and well wishes. Looks like 7 long years at SDN have paid off.

I hope to be an active member of SDN for many more years.

PCOM Gen Surgery rotates through these hospitals:
  • Crozer Chester Medical Center
  • Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
  • Deborah Heart and Lung Center
  • Cooper Hospital/University Medical Center
  • Frankford Hospitals

Definately impressive and congrats.

One more month to go for me :)

I have my own groupies!

:laugh:

General surgery is 5 years in length. I am undecided as what I would like to do after my residency, but it will involved teaching at some point. Later in my career I woulnt mind heading up a residency program or having a position at a DO school as head of surgery.

At this point I have considered everything from Plastics to Transplant. I think the only subspecialty I have ruled out is vascular.

way to go JPH, I remember when you burst on the scene with a flurry of posts about how your practice MCAT stunk and that you really wanted to go to UCONN med school. Sounds like it all worked out for you.

JP, did you only rank 1 DO program, b/c you were going to try the allo match if you didn't match your #1 choice, or were you that sure you were gonna get it? Congrats, man. I'm sure the Gen Surg program at PCOM is top notch.

Only ranked one program because my back up plan was an internship that is never close to filling.

Yep. I want to go either to trauma or transpalnt surgery...many top DO surgeons are from PCOM. I want to have my away rotations there...maybe to have an honor to meet JPHazelton in person :) hehe

A lot of PCOM GS grads go into Plastics, Vascular and Trauma. Those seem to be the biggies. Colorectal and Critical Care Surgery for a few as well.

Honor to meet me? Yeah...I guess it would be. ;) :laugh:
