I am a Psych PGY1, my husband matched a competitive fellowship in a different state. I am very happy in my current residency and doing well in the program so I hadn’t really considered a transfer but lately everyday I keep thinking about doing another 2-3 year of long distance, we’ve already done one year long distance. It seems like it’ll be a lot of flights, money, time conflicts next year with us being in different states. The plan was that I’d hopefully match for child and adolescent fellowship in his program and move there during my fourth year but I keep thinking I should at least try to switch as a PGY2? I would only consider a transfer directly to his hospital, no where else. I’d rather stay at my residency or move straight to his. This is so conflicting because I do love my program and all my friends there and don’t want any conflicts in my work environment. I have heard horror stories about program retaliation and other issues with this process. What are others thoughts?
