So you want to be a fellowship trained surgeon. What are your goals and dream programs? Do you have a heart for Peds surgery and want one of those rare, coveted spots?  What do you have to do to make these wants a reality? Fellowships are competitive. So let’s talk competition!

Competition – The Activity or Condition of Competing

To compete you must condition. Much like athletes condition their bodies, residents must condition their brain. There are long hours, lack of sleep, and soooo much information crammed into these formative years--but I probably don't need to tell you that. How do we know if we are doing enough? If we are excelling and not just getting by?

Well then there's the ABSITE…every January. Are you above the 50th percentile, or are you average? How are you preparing with everything on your plate?

So Many Books

There are dozens of books, and who has time to read them all?  The world is changing, the way we study is changing.  My advice:  don’t just read a book, go next level. Train your brain, we need more than the visual. ABSITE Smackdown is the only review book with video lectures you can use anytime on almost any mobile device. 

Isn't that what we need nowadays?

Be competitive. Condition.  For some of you, it's all about the fellowship, right?  Let ABSITE: Smackdown! help you train.
