Surgery Residencies

Discussion in 'Clinical Rotations' started by baylor21, Jan 16, 2000.

  1. How difficult is it to get into a surgical residency program on average? About what percent of applicants to surgical residencies get accepted? (e.g. 5%, 10%, 20%, etc)

    I was always under the impression that the step from premed to med student would be the biggest hurdle, but now I'm under the impression that a much greater challenge lies in getting accepted to a surgical residency. Maybe my perceptions are just innaccurate.

    Are surgical residencies reserved for only the truly elite medical students or does a greater proportion of med students have a shot at getting accepted?

    Any info you could give me on this is appreciated.
