Rejected after interviews, would really appreciate some advice
Hi everyone Apologies in advance for the long post! I would really appreciate some advice from applicants who have been unsuccessful at interview and have subsequently gone on to be offered a place, and anyone else who wants to share their experiences.

I was subsequently interviewed at SGUL, Barts 5 year & Barts GEP...

Psychiatric ward experience
Hello all, I have completed a couple of shadowing experiences in geriatrics and paediatrics but would very much like to shadow nurses or consultants at a psychiatric ward, as psychiatry is one of the specialities I am strongly considering post-med school. It has been hard to obtain experience thus far because of the risk factors inherent in these wards, but can anyone direct me to a centre that would be open to a mature student shadowing? I would be much obliged. Regards DS. (Source: New Media Medicine)

My story as an Unemployed Pharmacist with Residency, experience, solid network
I have to start this post by saying to the moderators of student doctor network, please do not move this thread to the "job outlook" mega thread. The reasons I say this is when I searched unemployed pharmacist studentdoctor does not get great hits for this bc Google indexes a lot based upon title of the actual Thread. I am hoping my story can give some good insight into some things the profession is facing and the struggle I am facing. This is a serious post so please keep responses serious.

Neurosci B.S. undergrad gpa: 3.0, 1 year post bac gpa: 3.8, Medical Science M.S. gpa: 3.2 I was a dental school applicant that is now more interested in P.A than dentistry.

This is just a little nonfiction piece I wrote after visiting the dental hygienist earlier today. Yes. Today. I should have brushed my teeth before I came. Everybody does that. I'm sure to the dentist, it's like cheating; but I don't think they mind. How could they, anyway? I could just say I've been chewing gum. No, my dentist knows me too well for me to get away with that. I don't chew gum. I never have. I'll eat uncooked foods, use my mouth as a tertiary hand, and even share a cigar with someone that smokes as if they have lips built for someone twice their ethnicity, but chewing on the same piece of rubber for thi...

Residencies with predominantly night / 3rd shift hours?
I'm an MSIII who is leaning toward geriatrics, and as such will probably go for an IM, FP, or Psych residency. I cut my teeth in the healthcare world working at nursing homes and hospitals as a nurse's aide, and it was here that I discovered I'm at heart a creature of the night. I absolutely love working 3rd shift. My wife and I have settled in the greater NYC area, and this is where we intend to stay for the long run. We also plan on having a child as soon as I get my DO. Based on my previous experience working nights, I found it surprisingly amenable to a good home life. I woke up just when my wife was getting home fr...
