One of the anesthesia programs I interviewed at is offering me a CA1 position to start in Jan 1st, but they need a "release letter" from my current residency director saying that he is allowing me to leave the program. I talked to him and he said "let me think about it"!! Has anybody heard about people having problems getting these release letters? What can I do if he says no? This is freaking unbelievable! After all it is my life and my career we are talking about here!! Any comments or advice welcome. Thanks!
