  Best Programs for Academic Career
Posted by: Guest - 03-28-2020, 12:40 PM - Forum: General interest - Replies (9)

I realize that there are several attempts at this thread, but let's try to have a conversation about who the true creme de la creme of training programs are for careers in academic neurosurgery. 

Let's hear top tens in no particular order

Stay well everyone!

  Student loan debt
Posted by: Guest - 03-27-2020, 02:41 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

How long does it take to pay off student loans? When I come out of med school I will have about 400k in debt, and that’s not including interest.

  Step 3 before intern year starts?
Posted by: Guest - 03-26-2020, 09:14 PM - Forum: General interest - Replies (2)

I start my intern year in July of this year and in light of all the self-quarantining, I was wondering if it would be a good/bad idea to take step 3 before the beginning of my intern year. I realize I have to graduate before I can register for Step 3. I'm asking if it would be in my best interest to study for Step 3 now, register immediately after graduation in late May and take it.

  Step 1 Studying
Posted by: Guest - 03-24-2020, 06:30 PM - Forum: USMLE - Replies (7)

M1 here

On this quarantine grind, constantly bored as online classes don't take much time. Want to make some of my time productive by starting some basic prep for Step 1 information. Thought about reviewing and getting materials together for things like biochemistry topics that were specifically covered at beginning of M1 and won't really be covered again. 

What type of resources would be best at this point? Pathoma, boards and beyond, just first aid? Any help is appreciated. 

Would prefer to avoid the "don't study for step 1 rn" comments. Also working on data collection for a research project currently so am helping myself in that way too.

  COVID and SubI
Posted by: Guest - 03-24-2020, 09:35 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

If you end up with COVID while on a SubI do you think that needing to be on a vent for just like 5 or 6 days will affect the quality of your letter? Will it look better if you opt for less sedation so that you can still make the list while on the vent?

  Advanced Statistics - 2020 Match
Posted by: Guest - 03-23-2020, 06:25 PM - Forum: On the trail - Replies (15)

The NRMP released advanced match data for 2020. Brutal year in our specialty.
The overall match rate was 58.4%.
The match rate for US MD seniors was 74.4% (vs. 80.4% last year). By comparison, the match rate for US MD seniors this year is 78.1% in dermatology and 79.1% in ortho. ENT also had a tough year with 73.6% of US seniors matching.

  How competitive is neurosurgery vs the other specialties
Posted by: Guest - 03-21-2020, 04:05 PM - Forum: General interest - Replies (15)

basically the title...
How hard is it to match neurosurgery in comparison to the other specialties. I’d appreciate it if someone could rank the specialties in terms of competitiveness

Thanks
