Created Dec 1, 2008. I personally know 3 people 260+ who didn't match d erm this year. It's boards, grades, and research. Dunno why you are getting downvoted. I honestly think general surgery is going to be able to take some IR procedures. That's no moon. I've heard more and more spots will open up as DR programs open up IR fellowships non integrated in a couple years. Sure. Also I don't really like the bread and butter surgery cases! those jobs are exceedingly rare. I'd never match it and there's more stuff I'd rather do so I'm not even bothering, but doing radiology without sitting in a dark room alone all day is pretty attractive.

Previous examples of troll posts involved users seeking "help" on mundane or sensitive personal issues. because lots of folks are drinking it. Our large subspecialized radiology department performs and interprets almost 3 million exams each year. The Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging offers the highest ranking clinical training programs in diagnostic radiology in the country. Posts made by accounts with less than 10 comment karma or less than 3 days old will be automatically removed. In the end, IR will always make new things up and (hopefully) hold on to it as long as they expand on less inhabited fields and require more of their imaging expertise. Then why'd you go to med school???" The big company is more efficient and profitable, can make better exclusive deals with insurance cos, and push out the little guy. For example, treating a sick patient in the ICU may require a central line but it isn't what an intensivist loves and they don't jump at the chance to do them.

Graduates of our program have excelled in both academic and private practice. IR is not a field in which you finish residency and land a sweet high paying gig doing 100% IR. that is a MAJOR red flag, imo. If requested before 2 p.m. you will receive a response today. And the affects of academic politics always ripple to the rest of medicine. Letters matter a lot for some specialties. I’m going into IR because I really like radiology and I also really like procedures, and I really like the type of procedures and the technology that is specific to IR. Resident salary for the past 3.5 years was about $50,000 (working close to 75 hours per week) so I was only able to make close to minimum payments. And for the first time in nearly 2 decades, IR has leverage that they didn't always have in academic hospitals. [–]bropafenoneM-4 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (0 children), When I was on my IR rotation, I got so much experience doing Ports one on one with the attending since all the other medical students and residents didn’t want to do them. [–]m3Zephyr 7 points8 points9 points 2 years ago (4 children), According to my family a radiologist is either an x ray tech as you said or cures cancer lol (radiation oncologist = radiologist apparently), [–]YoungSerious 17 points18 points19 points 2 years ago (3 children). However, the people interested in surgery who swap to IR are going to be disappointed eventually. Trying to crap on IR so you can hog all the spots to yourself I see. So yeah, I'm not saying you're completely wrong but your perspective seems like limited to the small slice of the field that you've been exposed to. Those crazy earnings are probably only available to DR if you work crappy hours.

For example, in Minneapolis, MN you might make $213,571 per year. As a consequence, its actually become a little easier to match into surgical subspecialties. [–]PoorAuthor9 13 points14 points15 points 2 years ago (5 children). You illustrated my thoughts exactly, except for psych. You just have to make sure that your reasons for choosing a specialty are good for you, and not based purely on how prestigious or lucrative it is. Applicants need to take a step back and understand why they are applying for a certain specialty. I think OP is right. But by procedures, I mean the basic easy things, and I actually hate anything requiring the use of a retractor. ENT attending says patient too unstable to go to OR without possible massive transfusion and permanent sinus damange, call IR, one sphenopalatine embolization later bleeding stopped. There is absolutely no reason for this specialty to be so fucking "all-in". I feel like for it to continue to be a sustainable, established and independent speciality, IR is going to have to stay later and come in more weekends and nights like the rest of us. Many of our staff radiologists are active in research at the national and international level. On the flip side they all hate their jobs, so there's that. All submissions are required to include a tag so that they can be flaired and sorted. I am scared to wait until I'm in my mid 30s to start having fun and enjoying my life. The interventional cards stuff mostly impacts cardiothoracic. If it can become the most competitive specialty overnight, it can fall just as fast as well. I think the difference is although IR has been a thing since the 80s, in the last 10-15 years IR has gone through a bit of an internal tech revolution which has changed a lot of the politics about it. [–]ashernDO-PGY2 11 points12 points13 points 2 years ago (1 child). Earlier this year I had a conversation with a few of my classmates about our interests. Is their work easy? Anesthesia also can do a bunch of other stuff depending on specialty which can either make your hours better or worse. Who told you that? Well done. Whether that's EM, or Anesthesia, or even - gasp - Family, I want to enjoy the work. I have about $80,000 of student debt from undergrad and $230,000 of student debt from medical school (interest rates ranging from 3.4% to 6.8%). Hi fellow applicants - It's that time of year, when 2020's spreadsheets wither and die and the 2021 specialty specific … Interventional cards clearly owns the heart.

[–]SleetTheFoxM-4 6 points7 points8 points 2 years ago (2 children). The people who yikes you are those who are too jealous to reflect on their shortcomings internally to have had the opportunity to have zero barriers to figuring out what they truly would want to practice in life. I dont know how much of all of the above is true b/c I don't have an interest in IR and I dont know much about it, other than knowing I'm not competitive for it. use the following search parameters to narrow your results: Please keep all topics germane to current medical students. Any school that can set you up with these resources will make you succeed, it's up to you to decide on what makes you happy. When med students realize how competitive a specialty is because of the few number of spots or high compensation, they get their dicks hard and it suddenly becomes appealing in this rat race. Edit: the bureaucracy is everywhere. AMA-style threads are not allowed without prior moderator approval. This is around the same time the Clinton universal healthcare plan fell apart and it was basically cemented that the business world would have a place in healthcare. Our department is fantastic, and is really a large part of the reason we as a tertiary referral center have a last trick up our sleeves for all of these horrifically sick weird cases. Those who aren't doing the hours aren't going to talk about it. Benefit of that is that you getting called in usually means you making more money. That's fair but I feel like these individuals will have the determination to do something about it. Since interest has been accruing while I was in medical school and residency, I have not even begun to dig into the principal debt. Frankly, to people who are not in medicine, radiology doesn't even sound like being a doctor. I hope you get a real answer to your question.

I am of the opinion that if IR leadership is bad at a hospital, then the IR physicians will be in a bad position as well. He submitted that 5 months ago.

[–]koolbro2012M-2 3 points4 points5 points 2 years ago (0 children). I think IR is appealing because it's like surgery-lite with all the cool gadgets. Also, as for turf wars, yes IR has been in turf war forever. People can also say they matched IR instead of “just” DR. You get to balance reading and procedures and if you want to be aggressive, can also think about seeing pts/building outpt practice. I'm not talking about 2018...I'm saying with the new fellowship structure that is happening in a couple of years, there will be many more spots. This is a subconscious truth for many (most?)

I think that’s why there is such discrepancy in what you see at different hospitals. Everyone has a story about getting shit on during their surgery rotation, and unfortunately they come here to vent and take it out on surgery people. Do what is right for you. IR absolutely trumps gen surg in terms of money for work done. Where once a state had many independent hospitals, now most states are literally turning into 2 or 3 hospital corporation systems (where every hospital is owned by a single corporation that owns all the hospitals and many of the outpatient centers in the region). In a few years there will be almost certainly be a saturation of the IR market and then compensation will trend down. They both have "good working hours" but it really depends on how you want to define that.
