Hello, I am currently a PGY2 resident in my initial chosen specialty but I am really beginning to feel that I made the wrong choice as I am not enjoying what I do daily. I know it is early but I have a feeling that this is not the career for me. I did not really do much work outside of a couple rotations in the field during medical school and have not had it since then. I am planning to apply to occupational medicine residency in the next month my question is the following: 1) how bad will it look if I don't have a current PD letter, reason I ask this is because my department is currently in flux and there's an interim PD and I want to try to be discreet. Will be able to easily get a letter from my PGY1 PD. 2) I had nothing but excellent evaluations from the first year so I can use multiple letters from last year. Will the programs I wanted to try to contact my current PD? I would have a decision by December so that gives me plenty of time to tell my current program they may find a r they may find a replacement. Thank you and I would appreciate any help with this.
