[QUOTE=Yazan;594033]First of all... All the best, hopefully many of you have by now met your dreams ... I want to ask about Prelim year.. what exactly happens during it? is it paid?

Btw I am an IMG trying to build up my CV, felt soo about it when I read your credentials guys... fingers crossed though[/QUOTE
It's complicated. Its paid. Nobody knows what happens afterwards. We have tit bits info from here and there. That said most residents make it to a program. Either by switching specialties or outperforming their categorial residents
