It means that a number of residents dets accepted for PGY-1. Then each year people get fired(kicked out) based upon a bad evaluation, bad report, lower scores on the in-service exams... The program lets only the best graduate. It used to be very common thing, but then programs went away from this system because they noticed it's very contraproductive - residents back stabbing each other and not helping each other, gossiping...

Personally, I would not want to be a part of this kind of game...disapproval


Wow,thanks alot, thats really good info.
Such programs should definately b avoided


What are the other such pyramidal programs? Any information?


well i guess we can get a general idea by looking at the frieda online website and the number of residents in each yr[i.e does it progressively decrease]


however the number in the first year can be different from the number in the second and third due to prelim positions...
compare second and third to determine a possible "pyrimidal system"...
