I am looking for someone interested in sharing a Family Med residency spot in 2017. I don’t have confirmation from the PD yet, but I think it will be doable. The program is osteopathic but applying (as all are) for ACGME accreditation as well. I think they will have no trouble getting it. I realize shared residency is not common, not easy, etc etc. I don’t need anyone discouraging me! I just need to know if there is someone out there who also has family or other issues preventing them from doing residency full time, and would like to entertain the idea of spreading it out. Even if you are just considering the possibility, or have questions etc., I’d love to talk.
I’d also love to hear from anyone who has any personal experience with sharing residency and/or negotiating an extended schedule!
Thanks for your offer. I am really just looking for some help with
1. learning more about how shared residencies have worked for other people (logistics, working with GME to plan/coordinate etc)
2. finding someone who might like to share with me!
If you have any info on either of these areas, please let me know.
