Thiopental,

I have the same question about Cali programs as well. I am currently matching for Peds this year and I am thinking about switching to anesthesia next year. what residency program are you at?

I was! You can PM me if you have specific questions. There were also a lot of threads started regarding this topic in the past that might be helpful. I think you can search for them if they're not too old.

At UCSD we have a CA-2 who transferred from Beth Israel in Boston and another CA-2 who transferred from the University of Florida program. Both of these guys were med students at UCSD so they kind of knew our program director. Also, one of our chief residents originally matched at UCLA, but somehow got out of it and came to UCSD. Thus it can be done, although having connections is a plus.

we have a current CA-1 @ UCSD who is moving back to miami due to health reasons and some family issues. so we may have an opening for a CA-2 starting july '05. e-mail our secretary cindy slaughter @ [email protected] if interested.
