    Ok it is all cleared with my program director. We have a PGY 2 spot opening in July at Detroit Receiving Hospital due to the departure of one of our current residents to another area of medicine. Here is who he is looking for:

    From Robert Wahl:
    I will begin to look at qualified candidates; specifically, anyone who has already successfully completed one year in an approved allopathic emergency medicine residency program. If you would like to forward me information from qualified candidates, I will review and make contacts.

    If you are interested then you can PM me and I will forward your info, or more directly you can email my PD, Robert Wahl, at [email protected]

    Our programs website is as follows: http://www.med.wayne.edu/em/

    Thanks for looking and good luck

    Just bumping this thread now that I cleared it all with my PD. Keep an eye out on the SAEM website too, I have heard rumors that there may be a PGY1 spot opening up somewhere in Michigan. I will post if I hear more.

    We (Yale) also have a PGY-2 spot opening up. One of our interns is moving back home to be with family.

    It's posted on the SAEM website already.

    This is an unfortunate one. I heard (from a UCD EM program graduate) that one of the incoming EM interns at UC Davis was killed in a plane crash last weekend (small private plane)...

    Yeah she was a terrific person and our specialty has lost a great asset. I didn't want to say anything till it was brought up by others. She was a great and nice person and will truly be missed.

    I didn't know her at all, but my friend did and thought that she was a great person. Very sad indeed.

    Sorry to hear about the death, that is truly unfortunate.

    I have heard through the grapevine that Beaumont in Oakland county MI was given the OK to expand from 10 residents per class to 12 residents per class. Rumor is they have 2 spots that were added after the match and may be available. I would suggest doing some research on this. Their program directors name is Frank McGeorge. A website that you may want to check out is http://www.beaumonthospitals.com/pls/portal30/site.web_pkg.page?xpageid=gme_res_ec

    Wow that is really sad indeed....wow...my thoughts and prayers will be with that family....

    I was wondering how does one even go about inquiring about the possibility of this openning after all that? Do you guys think the program will open up that spot? Also how do people go about in transferring after being committed to the hospital/program via the match? For example if you matched in the east coast as a PGY-1 and was hoping to come back to the west coast...how do you go about in trying to transfer for July of 2007?

    Just wondering...
