    Excuse me for my ignorance.
    Does this thread refer to fellowship spots to start in JULY 2010, or 2011?

    I know you have to apply in 2009 for a spot in 2011, and I am a bit alarmed to hear that programs may already be inviting for the match for spots to start in 2011.

    Also, does anyone have a list of non-ASOPRS programs? I've been scanning the web and having a hard time finding any info. I'm a first year, and still undecided, but feeling stressed about already losing the opportunity to go into a field that sounds interesting.

    The current interviewees are looking at 2010 summer starts.

    The few non-ASOPRS programs are usually affiliated with faculty at major academic departments and are selected either through the SF match along with the other fellowships or are not selected through any match (i.e., you apply privately, as if for a job.)

    These are the programs that have offered interviews that I am aware of:
    1. MD Anderson (UT Houston)
    2. Vanderbilt/Memphis
    3. Cleveland Clinic
    4. Colorado
    5. Utah
    6. Ohio State
    7. Illinois
    8. Jules Stein, UCLA

    I believe I heard NY, Wilmer and Nesi (MI) have invited, but not 100% sure. I don't know of anyone who has heard from BP, Iowa or Baylor.

    I heard from Nashville/Memphis on 1/12/09 via e-mail. It seems that e-mail is the preferred means of communication (good or bad messages:rolleyes:) for most places.

    Just got email from Iowa tonight. Interestingly, Nerad is transferring to Cincinatti while Carter is staying at Iowa so the interview will be for 2 spots! BP sent out invitations sometime early-mid last week. As far as I've heard, UPenn is the only program left now that has yet to send out invites (but that may be incorrect) due to family issues with Dr. Gausas. Heard rumors that she may not take a fellow this year due to this, but I don't think that's true (at least an applicant from Penn told me he hadn't heard this to be true). Anybody have anything more to contribute about UPenn?? :confused:

    i know this may not be the proper place for this post but seems to be where the people i wanted to contact are looking :D
    ... i recently matched into a program that only has 1 plastics doc who isn't really in the "academic realm" of things and i was wondering all all my shots at going for a plastics fellowship impossible now? or are there places that i can do research with even if it's not my program per se? any advice/help would be much appreciated! thanks!!

    Good luck to those applying this year...I suspect the number of applicants will be much less this year, especially with the hard economy...cosmetics and non-insurance procedures are taking bit hits. Lots of good programs though in this years match. Take the rank lists seriously--you don't want buyer's remorse!!
