Is it true?

a good surgeon cannot be slow and a slow surgeon cannot be good

Besides the SANS modules, please let me know what other resources needed to comfortably pass the boards and how far from march to start studying. I haven’t passed last year and would be in trouble if I don’t pass this time.

  Question for those who got married right before residency
Posted by: Guest - 11-13-2020, 04:23 AM - Forum: General resident issues - Replies (3)

Were your future spouses reluctant with the idea of you pursuing Nsgy residency? Assuming you just got married during 4th year, that would put you in residency right at the start of your marriage. I cant imagine that all new marriages can survive that. Any advice for determining whether your future spouse would be up for basically waiting for you for seven years? Red flags that indicate a weak marriage?

Besides the obvious personality issues, what are some reasons applicants don’t match especially if they go on ~15 interviews?

  Hospital Quality Improvement Project Ideas

What quality improvement projects have your performed at your hospital and what was the result?

It would be helpful to create a list of successfully implemented ideas for residents at other institutions to implement over overall improvement of the quality of care we deliver to our patients.

  Spending research years at a closeby institution?
Posted by: Guest - 11-04-2020, 06:06 PM - Forum: General resident issues - Replies (1)

Is this generally possible? If you are in UCSF, could you arrange to work under a PI at Stanford (assuming you had funding) during your two research years? Other examples: UCLA resident at USC or Caltech, Baylor resident at Rice or Houston resident at Baylor, Columbia Resident at Cornell etcetc.


If there is no already-present consortium between two institutions, is this possible? Perhaps might be easier if you are working for two PIs - one at home institution and another at the other uni.
