I find it interesting that the Resident section seems to have the least traffic--my guess is that we're all pretty overwhelmed. I'm procrastinating but just wanted to say that I hope you all are hanging in there. Remember that we're 1/4 of the way through this year already!

Haha, it is kind of sad that there aren't more posters here. Oh well. Guess we all work too much, and spend our internet time on SDN. ;) I wish everyone good luck, and energy, chugging through residency! :D

I'm having a great time here in the sun and surf of south Texas. My kids love it. My call is only q 14 or so. Very realistic. My program is small (only 8 interns) with 4 upper levels. We really have a lot of control and do a lot of stuff unattended. I like it because the attendings are available but you really are running the show in regards to patients. I like it. I haven't been too overwhelmed since the first month. I am still applying to surgery for next year so we shall see how much that changes. But intern year is pretty lax and I don't feel like I am ignoring my kids. I do a 50-60 hour weeks with the occasional 84 when I have a call night.

I hope things are well for everyone else.
