I'm trying to find out whether fast tracking into CAP fellowship must be done right after 3rd year, or just signifies starting fellowship prior to completing 4 years of residency, but I haven't been able to find this addressed anywhere. I'm hoping to have a baby during 3rd year, and would like to take 3-4 months off (another resident at my program did this, so I know it's feasible). However, this will obviously require an extra 3-4 months be added to the end of my residency in order to make up the time. I am planning to do a child fellowship, and am wondering whether it would be possible to enter fellowship directly at the end of 4th year - having completed the 3 years required for fast track, plus a bonus 8-9 months, but still being 3-4 months shy of completing residency. Does anyone know where I might be able to find the details on fast tracking rules? Thank you.
