GS residency in California
Hey everyone, I'm a third year medical student interested in surgery. I am wondering how competitive are residencies in California? My step 1 was 237. I got "exceptional" on my surgery rotation (missed honors by a few points). My clinical eval was high but the shelf pushed me out of honors range. It was tough doing surgery as my first rotation without medicine. Anyways, just wondering if I'd be competitive at California programs. I did research with an oncologist my first two years. So far...

Be careful when ranking Texas IM programs; very malignant

Texas IM residencies are notorious for being extremely malignant and I know several residents at different places who have been fired ( I don't know why but apparently the number is what would be concerning). Obviously, the first program would be UTSW in Dallas.

Clinical staging of prostate cancer -- this may be a dumb question but I swear I have seen multiple ways used in my institution. Is clinical staging "overruled" by a DRE, biopsy, and/or MRI? In other words, let's say a guy had cT1c disease because it was all found on screening PSAs. - What if this guy had a DRE that showed a suspicious right sided nodule without ECE/SVI - do you still call it T1c or is it T2b? - What if this guy then had a biopsy and found to have prostate cancer...

Gastric cancer local spread
Hey, FA states; "Early aggressive local spread with node/liver metastases" for gastric cancer. What does that mean exactly? Does this mean that for every type of gastric cancer, if metastasis to the liver or local nodes (e.g. sister Mary Joseph nodule but NOT Virschow node as that is distant) then the gastric cancer is early in progression but is aggressive.
