  Program Trajectories
Posted by: Guest - 09-28-2020, 06:41 PM - Forum: On the trail - Replies (14)

Are there any programs with particularly noteworthy upward or downward trajectories? 

It seems like this information isn't always captured in rankings or typical conversations about programs, but it should be an important consideration for applicants thinking about the next 7-8 years.

  Starting Pediatric Neurosurgery Salary?
Posted by: Guest - 09-24-2020, 03:07 PM - Forum: Practice patterns - Replies (10)

Just wondering what a reasonable expectation of a starting salary would be for a pediatric neurosurgeon at an academic practice? Would having 500k as your threshold be too high or too low?

  Who has to use the standardized letter template?
Posted by: Guest - 09-22-2020, 02:38 PM - Forum: General interest - Replies (7)

Who has to use the standardized letter template? Is it just the chair/program director and the gen surg letter? Or do other faculty that you have asked to write the letter need to use it too?

  Basic question about call
Posted by: Guest - 09-11-2020, 11:12 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

I’m a premed on my gap year with a growing interest in NSGY and had a basic question on how call works for neurosurgeons: who gets cranial call, and what kind of call do you get depending on your subspecialty? Do functional surgeons have to take cranial call?

  How are Cureus papers viewed?
Posted by: donut2023 - 09-10-2020, 09:24 PM - Forum: General interest - Replies (3)

Can a Cureus paper hurt a residency application? e.g. shows a paper is so low impact it couldn't get published elsewhere

Is it worth it to let a paper die or submit to Cureus? 

Curious to hear thoughts.
