    Start looking around next spring & have your program director or chairman make some inquiries. There are usually dozens of PGY-2 spots that come open then.

    There's so much paperwork involved. From what I've seen it's best to start gathering your information in the fall and start making your inquiries then. I've seen positions, albeit not in surgery, fill their vacancies for the following year, as early as January, even though most PGY-2 positions oftentimes become available in May or June.
