Hello if anyone has any advice what so ever I would greatly appreciate this. I am a first year categorical surgery intern and I am about to have a melt down. First off I was allured into the field because as a student it was freaking awesome to be in the OR. Most of my surgical rotations were in sub-specialties and I just didnt get a good feel for what the whole story is. It isnt that I mind working the long hours at all. I just get so tired of the constant barage of egos in this field and being broken down. Every morning when I get up myconscious keeps saying what the F&*( are you doing. The OR is no longer fun and I find myself during even the most simple cases anxious to get out. there is so much moire I could rale on but thats enough. I loved pathology when I was a second year and did extremely well. I truely considered it as a career and came close to changing my mind and entering the path match this year after research or something. Which leads to my question. Is it possible to find a path spot for next year after the match is over? I mean I dont know how competitive it is this year and all. There were several vacancies last year I would have been interested in even though they weren't at the best known programs, but that doesnt matter to me I would take anything at all to be out of surgery. Anyone who has any advice I would greatly appreciate it.
