Facebook question

There is a great question over on the Facebook group:

"So, my med student and I have been wondering since he is 1/2 way through his 3rd year.... what makes a 'good' residency program? What should we be looking for in a program or in a location? Any advice? I hear so often people saying "Oh, yeah, that's a good program" or statements along those lines.... which is why I can't help but ask, well, what MAKES a program 'good'. I read the terms 'top tier' 'mid tier' and 'low tier' programs and wonder- how do you know where a program fits in those terms? Thanks!"

Any thoughts you want to share here or over on the group?

Fellowship question

I was hoping to get the advice of some of you experienced in fellowships. My husband wants to do a fellowship, but I have my concerns. Well, one concern actually, my kids. We were only in MI for 2 years when we moved again to Philly. The first year was really tough on my kids, starting over, making new friends. My son still talks about his MI friends. I just really don't like the idea of moving my kids to a new location for one year. They will be 10, 9 and 6 when we move. And then we'd be moving again soon after. I just worry about them. My husband says kids are resilient and can handle the disruption, but I can't get that ugh feeling out of the pit of my stomach. That first year broke my heart with my son trying to make friends. Now he has some wonderful friends, but it was a rough year. I told Brad to either pick a fellowship where we are already living or plan on staying where he gets one, but that is obviously not completely in his control. Thoughts?


Poll - How is your Christmas shopping going?

Oops. I somehow put up the poll, but forgot to post. It's that time of year, when I'm just a scatterbrain.

Are you done shopping? Still a few more things to buy? I haven't wrapped a single thing yet. Is there a pause button for the next 14 days?
