  1. Is there any data on which residency programs have the highest attrition rates? Or is this kind of information impossible to know unless you are in the system (word of mouth).
  2. I've been having some issues with a tooth lately, and I was told it could cost $4000 to fix without insurance. I don't have that kind of money just laying around... Anyone know how the dental coverage works for residents?
  3. For me Easiest 2>3>1>4 Hardest 4 is awful just because of CaRMS. Other than that it's great because you know so much more. 2 is chill 3 is busy, but low expectations 1 is filled with imposter syndrome
  4. I think what you are feeling is entirely normal OP. I feel inadequate constantly as well, but I think we are our own worst critics. It takes time and repetition to get good at medicine.
  5. They will work you more hours than they say they will. But good thing is, it's only some rotations like general surgery and some other surgical specialties. Other rotations are usually not that bad. Residency is worse though. From what I've seen, it's way worse.
  6. I have about 200k in debt right now. I'm honestly very scared about the future. I don't even live luxuriously, the tuition, housing, food, car, and all the other random stuff really adds up. My parents are also in debt. It sucks.
  7. I'm MS-4 as well. I feel you OP. I also want a break. I don't I will need a year though (at least that's what I tell myself). It's likely we will get a few months off though, which I am hoping is enough to recharge. But this year is truly exhausting. More so than third year, I think because we didn't get a break between third and fourth year at my school. Just went straight ahead.
