shaking headshaking head, and somewhere in the distance, I can hear the healthcare graph crash to the ground........






  #42

Emergency medicine u deal with patient who come in without going to there primary doctor, either coz it was an emergency or more coz its free and they cant afford insuarance....u see a variety including trauma, surgery....u do a lot of minor procedures u wouldnt do anywhere else in peds...like splinting, incision and drainage...and from a lifestyle point of u there are no 24 hr calls...its shift duty...and very lil follow up
Critical care is of course as paheli said in-patients...with full in patient services and calls....so lifestyle wise its a bit more hectic i think...and stressfull...cause u see a lot of morbidity and mortality
thnks angel...am sure u'll find ur area of interest...maybe u'll apply to both and then let match decidesmiling face...but we need angels in peds more than anythingnod!
praying4a99--these type of posts are written by stressed out ppl high on something after a really bad day...in fact just by the way the post is written i suspect the writer possibly will do the opposite of what he/she states....or so i hoperaised eyebrow!


  #43

Thanks, mukho. Which is more competitive, Cric care or ER?

I have read in some threads that NY state has an upper limit as far as USCE goes, not more than 3/12 or else you're not eligible to apply. Mukho, do you know/can you verify this? There's so much ambiguous info around these days.

Dhanyavaad.



  #44

ER i have heard are more in demand...
Didnt get the next question actually, paheli....some instis have limits on how many mnths of ur med school training u have done from other institutes and that too, they ask for reasons dont really disqualify u...as for USCE, like observerships...there isnt any upper limit i know of...at least not for residency application....there of course are definite lower limits!! or maybe i am getting the ques wrong...


  #45

seriously mukho, your amazing ! I wish we don't lose you when you start your residency



  #46

Sorry, mukho, if I sounded vague. I'll try again. I've heard that if you have more than 3/12 duration of USCE, you are not eligible to apply to any[some?] progs in the state of NY. Is this true?

It sounded silly to me, but it's been repeated by a number of people. I still don't believe it fully, though. Has anyone else heard of this? I hope it's just a mean rumor.

Thanks.



  #47

What does "more than 3/12 USCE duration" mean?



  #48

3 months. I'm sorry, is that what caused all this confusion?



  #49

If you have more than 3 months of USCE you are not eligible? Hmm, sounds awkward to me. Isn't USCE like sugar; the more the better! grin



  #50

really!! u actually meant that having 'more' than some time of usce disqualifies....wow i never heard of that...not that i am authority but sounds highly unlikely no?!


  #51

Exactly! You're putting it nicely by saying 'unlikely'. I'll just go ahead and say it's 'stupid'. Not the progs, but the jerk who started this. [whoever, wherever, I don't even remember.] Thanks a lot, mukho, you angel.



  #52

My 2 cents:
European (Spain) IMG
Step 1: 98
Step 2: 99
CS: Pass on 1st attempt.
1 month observership at Baylor/TCH.

Applied to 30 programs, received 10 IV offers, attended 7 due to time restraints (Jacobi, Maimo, SUNY Downstate, Georgetown, CHOM, Miami Children's and Cincinnati Children's).

Matched at Cincinnati Children's (1st choice) grin

Thank you Prep4usmle!!



  #53

  #54

Yeah, that would be nice.Thanks, chicharro. And Congrats.



  #55

Mukho,

I seriously admire you .. you rock girl

I have checked you post in the match thread and i was qiute impressed by the fact that you get 5 prematch offer . I am curious to the secret behind it ! i have no doubt that you have such an great appealing personality that programs could not resist the idea of having you as part of thier team wink

Creighton University doesn't have its own pediatric program. However, they have a joint program with University of Nebraska Medical Center. They officially only offer J1 visa.

The thread has been "pinned". Please add all the info you have nod

This question gets asked very often thru PMs, so I thought I'd make it easier. What programs I applied to (those that took old grads, gave visas, mostly University or University Affiliated...also for me score cut offs, Attempts and Post graduation in home country weren't disqualifying....all were not neccesarily IMG friendly). This list is bound to differ according to what a persons qualifications are but some people felt it would be useful so before my ERAS accounts shuts down, here goes...
