  Camraderie among residents?
Posted by: Guest - 09-04-2020, 12:22 PM - Forum: General resident issues - Replies (3)

I saw a recent thread here saying that every resident "breaks" sometime during residency. This is not surprising, but do residents form a sort of bond among each other as a result? One would think that residency would be a lot more difficult if coresidents are not close.

After residency, do residents remain close?

  How important is it to save money during residency
Posted by: Guest - 09-03-2020, 09:33 PM - Forum: General resident issues - Replies (3)

I generally understand the benefits of putting money into a Roth IRA or 401k in terms of long term wealth development and growth. I am able to save some money during residency but based my understanding of what attendings salaries can be in both private practice and an academic setting how much of a difference does this make in the long term once you are making an attending salary.

  Neurosurgery Pre Residency fellow position
Posted by: Kestewar - 09-01-2020, 12:35 PM - Forum: Job openings - Replies (9)

Neurosurgery Pre-Residency fellowship position

Boston University School of Medicine
Department of Neurosurgery
Neurosurgery Fellowship

The Department of Neurosurgery at Boston University is seeking physicians for pre-residency, post-graduate fellowship positions in neurosurgery. Pre-residency fellows work alongside 8 neurosurgeons, 6 neuro intensive care neurologists, and neurosurgical and neurology residents at Boston Medical Center (Boston MA) and nearby St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center (Brighton MA).  The program provides broad clinical exposure in the neurosciences.  Pre-residency fellows are integral members of the neurosurgical team whose duties and responsibilities are commensurate with neurosurgery residency programs, include managing floor and ICU patients, night call, as well as assisting in the operating room and outpatient clinic. In addition to rotations on the neurosurgical services at Boston Medical Center and St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, there is a significant amount of time spent on the inpatient neurocritical care service at Boston Medical Center, so those interested in neurology or neurocritical care can take advantage of this opportunity.  Fellows also participate in weekly didactic sessions including neurosurgical core conferences, tumor board, neuroscience grand rounds, and critical care problem case conference.  Opportunities exist for clinical or basic research both within the institution and the fertile Boston academic environment. Accepted candidates must commit to a minimum of 2 years in the program. Candidates should be eligible for a Massachusetts limited license.
To apply, please forward (email) a letter of introduction and curriculum vitae, including your USLME scores to:
R. Tushar Jha, MD                                                       Hormuz Dasenbrock, MD
