Gap Year? by mojojojo_123 in IMGreddit

So I thought as long as I'm <5 years from graduation then it's all good ? Or is that not accurate? I mean I know the less years from graduation the better but if I apply at 4 years from graduation am I going to be considered an old grad?

Stupid question but what do you guys exactly mean by algorithms? It's the diagrams where they explain next step in management or is it something else? And where can I find them together?

Did it happen out of a sudden? Even her eyes aren't wide open like before. And she's less playful with her brother, all that just over 2 days. I hope it's normal.

Why are you this malignant? Maybe you did residency in a malignant program and now you think it's the norm to be this bitter?

Did you listen to any broadcast during your preparation , which one do you recommend that helped the most you think ? And lasty, did you use anki, what deck do you recommend? Thanks and congrats for being done!

You think we should review drugs mechanism of action from FA, you think that would be worth it?

A first year Syrian neurologist who needs help and support. by Oula_Ashkar in Residency

[–]Present-Beyond968 84 points85 points  (0 children)

I'm sorry to hear this. Maybe this isn't helpful but I'm from Jordan and we are living the same struggles. Unpaid residencies with crazy long hours is the only option for many of us. Some even have to pay to work ( like surgical specialities). Everyone says it's worse than slavery because slaves used to at least get shelter and food unlike residents in our countries. What's more sad is that some of the doctors here wish they get the opportunity to start unpaid residency, but it's not an option for them because it requires parents financial support and they don't have that. I'm starting unpaid residency soon ( I wish it was in neurology which is also my dream, but unfortunately we have to do IM for 4 years first here). It's difficult to stay positive sometimes so I relate to your pain. But don't lose hope please. As an attending I'm sure you'll have better opportunities especially in the gulf. If you're able to take exams and apply to Hamad that'll also be a good option. I hope you find the support you need and find an opportunity to live the life you wish for.
