hey guys. just a hypothetical question... lets say you settle for IM or family practice because that's all you can get into. you become a family doctor and thrive but then five years down the road you decide you want to be a surgeon. how do you go about switching specialties?? would you have to reapply to surgical residencies again?? if so... would the programs look at your med school GPA, step 1,2,3 scores that are 5+ years old???
