SIYAN: 1-year PRELIM

002年临床7年制毕业(内科研究生),同年来美,2007年初neuroscience Ph.D.毕业
,目前在同一实验室为post-doc。

考试成绩平平,step 1: 86 (2004), step 2: 92 (2007), step 3: 86 (2007),cs:
pass (2007). 去年6月拿的NIW绿卡,一个月的内科见习,4封美国推荐信(其中2个M.D
.)。申请了160个programs (80个prelim 内科,20个categorical内科,其余为麻醉
和病理)。

收到14个IV,其中12个是2007年11月1日前来的,最后rank了13个.

1. Ball Memorial Hospital, Muncie, IN (categorical IM)
2. UTMB, austin, TX (categorical IM)
3. University of Tennessee, Chatnooga, TN (categorical IM)
4. University of Nevada, Las Vegas, NV (prelim IM)
5. Maricopa Medical Center, Phoenix, AZ (prelim IM)
6. Morehouse school of medicine, Atlanta, GA (prelim IM)
7. St. Luke's hospital, St. Louis, MO (prelim IM)
8. Resurrection Westlake hospital, Chicago, IL (prelim IM)
9. Huron Hospital,Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH (prelim IM)
10. Oakwood Medical Center, Dearborn,MI (prelim IM)
11. Flushing medical center, NYC (prelim IM)
12. Baylor college of medicine, Houston, TX (anesthesiology)
13. University of Miami, Miami, FL (anesthesiology)
14. Louisiana State University at Shreveport (pathology)

最nice的program是LSU的病理,也是我第一个去的地方。招2个人,面试6个星期,每次
只面试1个人。提供住宿,晚餐(很好吃的意大利餐馆),PD亲自去旅馆接送。这个
program以前有许多CMG毕业生,目前有1个PGY-1。早上先参加AP sign out,主持的是
个年轻的中国faculty,很有水平。然后和PD,coordinator谈,再由chief领着参观。他
们采取group interview,就是在一个大会议室,13个faculty在一起,轮流问你问题,
简直和论文答辩差不多,基本上都是behavior questions,但有人让我比较我所在的学
校病理系和他们病理系的优劣。中午和所有的residents吃饭,感觉residents各个都很
happy。下午是CP sign out,是个老军医,非常和蔼可亲。

这个program很注重research,要求每个resident每年做一个课题,当然这对于广大cmg
是个有利因素。目前有两个fellowship,Chairman是肾脏病理的牛人,临走前亲切接见
了我。Shreveport是个发展中的中等城市,去dallas三小时,local店都在一条大街两
侧,residents都住在离医院15分钟的距离内。周末两天不上班,平时7am-5pm,工作量
比较轻松。强烈推荐大家以后申请这个地方,但没有prematch。

PAHOPEFUL: EM/IM/FM

1991 graduate, GC, 95/99/passed all on 1st attempt, no serious research or
publication. PA-C with US MPAS and MS in CS, 5+ year Ortho experience in
China, 5+ year software engineering in US (if this count). One year of US
clerkship, 6 month of Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant experience. 5
LORs including a SLOR, all from US MDs.

Applied to 60+ university program in early Sep., however, almost no IVs.
Suspected some problems with a LOR in conjunction with my long graduation
year and no research and publication, reapplied to some community or
university-affiliated programs in middle Oct. without the LOR, got 6 IVs in
total and attended them all. Avoid one prematch, unrank a program even
though they sent me email saying I was ranked on their list, ranked the rest.

IV list:

Texas Tech University, El Paso, TX
Richmond University Medical Center, Staten Island, NY
Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune, NJ
Overlook Hospital, Summit, NJ
Home School
Capital Health System, Trenton, NJ

A couple of the programs told me "You are one of the other kind of Chinese
medical graduates. Usually, the Chinese candidates we get have a long list
of publications with PhD degree but no USCE. You are different."

Dejadream: IM or ANES


graduated in 1999, 国内七年制。 最后一年半做了心内导管专业研究生。 来美PhD,
03年summer 毕业, 然后走路游览大半年。 04年中开始postdoc. 对研究一片痴心,
可惜一再受到lab内外的打击. 06年有了两宝,在他们10个月的时候,终于下了决心加
入考board大军的行列。 07年2月开始准备考试, 09月考完cs,九月底交出申请, 12月
底拿到certificate.

99/99/cs, with GC.

PS是自己写来然后请lab的老美看了一遍, 相片是就着自家的床单做背景拍的。 没有
USCE。

主要申请麻醉与内科。 全部是大学program。面试麻醉9/20, 内科6/35

总体感觉大学内科申请比麻醉要激烈, 因为他们很看重你的临床经历, 毕业年限,
certificate什么的。

zhaoju2000: IM or FM or Pedi

2004 7-year program graduate (bachelor degree in 2002).
95/97/pass/92 all in first attempt
Pediatrics in China (residency unfinished)
2.5 months of observership in Miami Children's Hospital
EAD card at the beginning of the application and Green card just before the
end of Februry, I updated all the programs I interviewed in time.
Applied to 3 specialties--Family medicine, Pediatrics, Internal medicine.
146 in total.
Got 22 interview calls and went to 19 of them. Got one prematch but refused
due to location concern. Ranked all of those I interviewed with.
I feel it is wise to apply to multispecialties since I only got 3 interviews
in my favorite field--Pediatrics, from which I get most clinical experience
and LORs. I thought I had strong background in Pedi.

In case someone is interested in my interview experience, please refer to an
articl I wrote earlier, here is the link:
http://www.mitbbs.com/article/MedicalCareer/31172939_3.html

Hope the program I matched is not too low on my rank order list!

dongbeiYJR: FM (a very touching story & bloody truth)


1993年毕业, 国内M.D., Ph.D. 国内肝胆外科医生.2003年初来美.
2005年申请3月回国,4月被告知没有位置.同月申请绿卡并报名准备考试.
2005年12月通过step 1/step2CK 及CS. 由于时间仓促, 成绩一般: 97/82. Step2成绩
成为致命缺陷. 吸取教训, 至今未考step3, 总觉得准备不充分(一年被蛇咬, 十年怕井
绳).
2006年9月申请, 开始只申请外科, 没有美国医生推荐信, 没有美国临床经验.到11月末
,只有两个Preliminary IVs, 后又申请FM, 又有三个IVs. 面试自我表现感觉良好(其实
是错觉). Rank时, 老婆坚决不同意外科放在前面, 最后阴差阳错还是match到纽约一医
院外科prelim.
2007年七月开始做PGY-1, 第一天就on-call. 第二天morning rounding被总住院大骂,
原因是我的病人在pre-round时一个也没换药. 之后几乎每天都被总住院和attending骂
. 犯的错误有: 不会按SOAP做morning report, 不会pre-op, 不会post-op, 不会下
post-op order, on-call时, 病人NGT脱出, 自己放回后没有告知senior……, 反正是
每天都犯错误, 多的我都记不清了. 这种情况直到半年后才有好转, 但是要命的是外科
住院医生每年的考评在11月份. 而attending认识到你原来还可以的时候, 考评已经结
束而且不可改了. 美国的`外科医生是没有任何忍耐性的. 自己出国前已经是上海最好
的医院的副教授, 被人骂时, 想死的心都有. 自己躲在宿舍里几次流泪.这里要说一句,
各位match上的, 在做intern时, 只要忠实执行上级医生的指示就够了, 没有问到你的
时候, 你不需要主动思考. 美国医院里的等级类似军队, 下级只有服从的份, 另外总住
院和attending 吩咐的任务一定按时完成, 记住, 在医院, 你只对总住院和attending
负责, 其他人都不怕得罪. You can’t make friends in hospital. 我讲一个例子,
我有一个病人, 第二天手术, 术前需要心内科clear心功能可以耐受手术, 我打内科医
生电话, pager, 打了几十次, 他就是不回. Afternoon rounding时, 总住院大怒, 他
说: “ I know he lives in New Jersey. Tonight you must find him and let him
clear the patient, I don’t mind how you do it, even if you knock the door
of each house in New Jersey.” 11月份考评, Associate Program Director尽管从
没和我一起工作过, 但他的评语: After discussing with the chief resident, we
both agree that Surgery is not a good choice for Dr. XXX, maybe Medicine is
a better choice for him. 我的临床技能更是被打了罕见的6分. 自己这时候才意识
到问题严重性, 赶快申请今年的match.(我原打算在我们医院好好表现, 争取转为
categorical, 尽管老婆坚决不同意我做外科). 由于申请晚了, 只得到了2 个IVS, 一
个是University of Wisconsin, 一个是University of Minnesota. 面试的感觉还可以
, 虽然我对现在医院很失望, 但毕竟我得到了宝贵的临床经验. 我还是非常感激我现在
的program. 面试后, 我拼命努力工作,看书, 准备一月份的外科住院医生ABSITE 考试
,也许是天道酬勤, 我考了99%. 得到成绩第二天, PD叫我到办公室, 说我是否想在这
里继续PGY-2 Prelim, 当时大喜. 想都没想就同意了. 几乎在同时, 我通过关系得知我
面试的一个program会将我rank在前5名. 当时老婆就说放弃外科, 进FM. 一周后PD告知
RRC批准我们program扩增, PD问我是否考虑从新开始categorical PGY1,和老婆商量后
她依然坚决反对, 她是个护士, 我们有两个孩子, 由于工作的原因, 我们长期两地分居
, 什么花费都是两份不说, 更严重的是孩子的教育已经耽误了. 再经过5年孩子都快上
高中了. 老婆意见很明确, 根本没商量, 家庭利益第一位, 选择家庭医生, 放弃外科.
老婆说的很实在, 我都这岁数了, 等你做完5年, 肯定要再做两年fellow (这里再插一
句: CMG 做外科一定要做fellowship, 否则你根本没有病人, 这是几个老台湾外科医生
告诉我的. 我科的台湾attendings虽然刀开的绝对漂亮, 可是在科里根本没有市场, 平
时没有人注意你, 可是一旦你出事, M&M上主任会将你问的哑口无言), 到时候我都黄脸
婆了, 人生最好的时候都打拼了, 根本没有机会享受人生. 在美国能给你机会做医生已
经很运气了, 人应该知足. 于是下定决心等match, 告诉PD今年参加match, 不想签
categorical合同. PD 到也不多勉强. 今天结果, 两个IVs, matched. 但是说实在的,
心里还是有一种淡淡的失落感, 毕竟将来不能干外科了. 但想到自己的年龄和家庭情况
, 也没什么好遗憾的. 这里衷心希望有志于外科的朋友加油. 对于CMG 来说, 不经过
Prelim 而直接进入Categorical 基本是不可能, 即使你是99/99/99. 因为美国的外科
体系大到临床诊断治疗流程, 小至开刀如何使用器械, 都与中国有不同之处, 没有PD
会要一个只有医学知识而不熟悉美国临床的人做Categorical. 但是match 到
preliminary Surgery 后只要努力, 还是很有可能转成Categorical的.

就写到这里, 最后祝每位好运.
