Sorry that I can not input Chinese in this computer. I am staying up in my
call room now.

Many factors may cause PGY-1 vacancy. People may quit after 2 months because
the program is not as they expected or the surgery specialtiy is not as
they expected. People may also be fired due to some reasons. In such case
the program have to find someone else to fill the position immediately. Such
position is exactly same to what you get through match after half year
struggling, except that this start now rather than next July.

The year after Preliminary surgery PGY-1 is not guaranteed. You have to find
position for next year.
You may end with
1. The worst situation: Re-apply for PGY-1 for any other specialties.
That's most people's experience.
2. The worse situation: Re-apply for Categorical surgery PGY-1. That is
most IMG surgeon and I went through.
3. The good situation: Apply for Preliminary surgery PGY-2. One India
IMG who I know is going through this now. A Russian surgeon and a Vietnamese
surgeon ever jumped to categorical PGY3 after finish Preliminary PGY-2.
They are my attending and my senior now.
3. The better situation: Apply for PGY-2 for other advanced program. I
got this chance last year for an advanced Anesthesia position (CA-1), but I
gave it up.
4. The best situation: If you are lucky and there is Categorical PGY-2
vacancy, you have chance go to Categorical PGY-2 after finish Preliminary
PGY-1. One Chinese surgeon, who I know, was that lucky.

Preliminary surgery PGY-1 is tough. The bottom line for us is that you at
least get 1 year well-paid USCE.

If you have good credencial and are not interesting in surgery, don't waste
time on this.
If you have good credencial and still miss surgery, this is a good
opportunity to chase.

Work hard for today, expect best for future!
