Does anyone know of programs which pay for your med school other than Louisville. Or does anyone know of programs which offer a stipend thats significant enough to at least partially offset medical school costs during your medical school time. I'm looking at various schools and trying to get an idea of True costs.
Also another question I had was about in state residency. I'm assuming that most programs have you do 1 year of OMFS service before starting medical school and therefore you would be classified as an in state resident for medical school. This has a huge impact on costs. If anyone knows of exceptions where this isn't true please let me know.

Thanks,

:)

1. Baylor gives you a stipend that covers tuition and then some.
2. Mayo give you a stipend which covers tuition.
3. U of Fl - Gainesville gives you a stipend which covers tuition and then some.
4. Penn gives you a stipend which covers tuition.
5. UMKC pays a stipend which will cover tuition.

Some of these programs, ie. Penn and UMKC require you to take call while in med school to keep the stipend.

I think just about everywhere gives you in-state tuition. I think San Antonio may not though based off of their website but I didn't go to the interview to get the scoop on that.

Thanks for the info, will have to check into San Antonio about that. TX in general seems to be the most affordable state :)

Not trying to hijack the thread but I have a slightly different question...

Do you get paid for the 4-year OMFS residency or do you have to pay?

I know I'm fascinating but jeez it's just getting creepy now.

I think servitup is just commenting on the fact that your asking questions that could be easily answered if you simply took the time to read the residency information on a few programs websites. I don't think people mind answering your questions... but putting effort into doing a simple google search and reading some information before you ask some questions is usually appreciated. :thumbup:

I know, I was being sarcastic. Actually, I did look it up and could not find a site that stated the benefits/salary of OMFS residency. He's just being an a$$hole. If I had him as a chief resident, I would transfer...has no social skills.

I'm hope you're just being sarcastic again, because if you think servitup is being being mean, you're in for a world of hurt if you ever get into an OMFS program. I would really suggest going and shadowing a OMFS resident to see what the hospital surgery culture is all about.

Yes. Baylor allows moonlighting during the first 2.5 years which are in Lubbock at Texas Tech Med School. Louisville allows it also. UF and Penn do not. Not sure about Mayo as I didn't apply there.

The percentage of women in OMFS is something like 3% nationally. I think that's more self selection than anything actively keeping them out though.

I agree. It seems UNC only accepts women for their 6 yr position these days though. I think it is like 4 of the last 5 and there are some upcoming seniors in line for the next one.

I know, I heard it was 2%. I hope you're right about self selection.

Haha, you'd just hop around from program to program cuz every chief resident is there to make sure you don't screw up and fix all your mistakes.....you'd probably think he/she is an a$$hole.

No moonlighting at Mayo. But they pay you to go to med school.

You're right, because they swear a lot more and are more derogatory :thumbup:

Transcript of a chat with a friend who just finished a rotation at Highland:

residents are nice, but they make fun of everyone constantly
so i figured out a few things you have to do to get ready
1) make sure you can use the words "****" or "****" in every sentence that you speak
2) be as racist/prejudice as you can
3) get excited when you hear about people jumping off freeway overpasses and surviving
4) learn how to pretend you're really interested in what the attendings are saying, even if they're talking about some new lawnmower they just bought
5) and know how to make coffee
i think if you can master all those 5 things, the rest will be cake

One day we're going to look back at this thread and laugh . . .:rolleyes:

Ok man, normally I don't respond to stuff like this but I'm just trying to help...

You do know that the people in this thread are the REAL RESIDENTS right? They are not making this up based on their favourite medical drama. It is a RESIDENT forum.

The search button is on top right of the page and you take a lot less abuse by given'er a whirl....

Who do you think is most likely to respond to a survey about females in oral surgery?

Survey could have been something like "Do you now, or have you ever had full, voluptuous breasts?"

Then you'd get answers from women and guys like brycethefatty

I would agree that this thread is getting ridiculous. I am not a resident nor will I be one on July 1st. I will only be a lowly intern. Basically, it means I am two levels below the dead bugs in clinic. Anyway, although cost is important in your decision please realize that when you pursue this career that you will be a surgeon. Attempt to go to the program that fits you best and pray to god that you get into any program. I know so many people who live and believe this profession and they would give their left "well you know" to get into any program. Cost should not be your primary factor in choosing programs. Hell it shouldn't be in the top 5. Finally, almost everyone who posts on here are or will be residents so show some respect. I would kill to be any of these guys or ladies intern. Just my two cents.

well my question wasn't really related about how many females were in the program.. it was the characteristics of programs that produced more faculty.. but that was an additional thing i found..
