Hi everyone, I’m a MS3 applying derm and we are submitting preferences for my sub-I month. My home derm program has many derm rotations and even if there are no aways it’s a tight fit to get them all in before ERAS. I’m also not the strongest test taker and would like a full month off to study for CK (and to make up for my step 1 score). At this point, I think it would be better for me to schedule my sub-I for after ERAS is due. I already have a very strong IM rec letter from my core. Are there any disadvantages to doing my sub-I later in 4th year after apps are due?
