I’m looking at last year’s BUMEDNOTE 1524 for Navy GME, and want to make sure I’m reading this correctly: When “remaining FTIS authorized selections” are listed (p. 15, below), is that BUMED’s goal for a given year? And does that mean all FTIS slots have been filled for a given position already if we do not see them on PGY1 selection goals (p. 14)? Take anesthesiology for instance: it has listed that there are NADDS opportunities but no FTIS opportunities (p. 14). Is this just because the...

The hospital system where I work has been doing COVID testing on all non emergent cases over the past several months. However, due to cost, and the fact that we are not finding many asymptomatic COVID cases, the CMO now wants to stop doing COVID testing pre op. Just wanted to see what is going on at your shop. My anesthesia group feels this is unfair to make a unilateral decision like this, especially since its our lives on the line during airway management, and every case we do is an...

Hello all, I'm an intern (PGY-1) currently at a TY residency. I'm in the process of scheduling my COMLEX level 3 and would like to know if I would need to take Step 3 also. Would having a Step 3 make me more competitive? If anyone has any ideas, let me know. Thanks in advance.

We examined the reliability of a commercially available assay for S100B used on the same samples by two different laboratories separated by 2 years in time. METHODS AND PROCEDURES: A cohort of 163 adult patients (head CT-scanned, n = 110) with mild head injury were enrolled from the emergency department (ED). All had Glasgow Coma Scale scores of 14 or 15 in the ED (94.4% = 15). The mean time between injury and venous blood sampling was 2.9 h (SD = 1.4; Range = 0.5-6.0 h). Serum S100B was measured at two independent centers using the same high throughput clinical assay (Elecs...
