Please advise.. Applying to residency with several red flags.

I am a 4th year DO student who is interested in psychiatry with several red flags--LOA for 6 month and low board scores (no failures in boards/courses/clerkship). FYI, I took a LOA for 6 months due to personal issues (family illness/ financial difficulties/relationship problem with a partner who has borderline personality disorder). I had been dealing with these issues for more than three years before I finally decided to take a LOA before breaking down. My grades started going down... Please advise.. Applying to residency with several red flags.

In the ensuing years, the patient was treated with 35 psychiatric medications. Additio...

Social distancing measures arising from the COVID-19 pandemic led to a cessation of therapeutic programmes in many places. This survey of DBT clinicians in a regional State mental health service in Australia explored the impact of the cessation of DBT programmes in...

Prospective longitudinal studies have demonstrated the association of BPD with social, familial and psychological antecedents. However, to date, few of these studies have studied the interaction of multiple risk domains and their potential manifestations in the preschool period.

This study examines developmental trajectories of adolescent girls' BPD symptoms and sexual risk behaviors in a community sample of Black and White girls from the Pittsburgh Girls Study (n = 1620). Dual trajectory modeling provided insights into the temporal precedence and co-development of BPD symptoms and sexual risk behaviors from ages 14 to 18. In order to examine the unique association between BPD symptoms and sexual risk behaviors, analyses controlled for symptoms of depression and conduct disorder, as well as race, sexual orientation, and pubertal development. Girls with more BPD symptoms at age 14 sho...
