Embarrassed Lost an IM interview

They send me an interview invitation and also required other information. I provided them all, which also includes 1 year clinical rotation. But my rotation did not have 4 wks rotation in psychiatry .... which was also a requirement to schedule an iv for IM. But i have nothing to do, during my internship rotation i only had 5 days rotation in psychiatry which is approved by my home country medical council.
Bad luck .... But its Ok ... If i am lucky will get job in my other IM IV's. If not may be will try one more year .... After that if i don't get it... then bye bye ....

How can a program be SO IRRESPONSIBLE! This is unbelievable.....I don't think that this program deserves ANY good residents if they treat people like this.

Default NJ prog

Mine was a NJ hospital , they said ... NJ require 4 wks psychiatry internship rotation. Otherwise i had all the requirements to schedule an Iv. In this case actually i have nothing to do. So i am not thinking about it .... But soso, your case is different .... Agreed with mle guy .... that program is really irresponsible .... I know losing an Iv is really painful at this time .... Hang on there soso , at the end of the day you will make it .... and i hope same for me too .....
