Should this subtopic remain here or move to be a Subtopic under Gen Residency Issues?

    I have to question why is this subtopic here? Why is this not a subtopic in General Residency Issues... "Residency Research" Therefore has more broad interest than just plain Physician Scientists.

    A lot of fellowships require research and residents looking at the general residency forum might be more interested in this subtopic if it was located in that area.

    Opinions?

    Put a forum where the relevant audience will find it and benefit from it.

    This subforum was created specifically for MD-PhDs seeking to know more about research residencies and issues specific to MD-PhDs rather than to the all MDs. Issues such as the importance of maintaining clinical and research continuity, short track residencies, residency/fellowship packages that lead to guaranteed junior faculty positions, etc ...

    It was also meant to be for more in depth research residencies that would lead MD-PhDs to physician-scientist careers.

    This subforum doesn't get much traffic where it is now, so maybe moving it wouldn't be such a bad idea. In my residency at least, there are plenty of non-PhDs doing the research track along with us mudfuds...

    Are you serious? Trolling? You do realize this is the only post that is visible under this subtopic.... What do I care I guess.. let it sit here and gather dust.
