Was wondering what jet, military, et al think about this: Program A is a surgical powerhouse, says residents learn by doing many cases of all types. Get out later, take more call. Program B emphasizes becoming a consultant anesthesiologist and that there are diminishing returns after doing a certain number of cases of a given type. You become proficient with technical aspects of anesthesia like lines and intubations quickly -- other stuff takes more time and isn't learned in OR. Emphasizes reading and other forms of learning. Who's blowing smoke? What's the right philosophy? Which graduate would you rather hire?
