Thank you for contributing to the sub! If your post was filtered by the automod, please read the rules. Your post will be reviewed but will not be approved if it violates the rules of the sub. The most common reasons for removal are - medical students or premeds asking what a specialty is like or about their chances of matching, mentioning midlevels without using the midlevel flair, matched medical students asking questions instead of using the stickied thread in the sub for post-match questions, posting identifying information for targeted harassment. Please do not message the moderators if your post falls into one of these categories. Otherwise, your post will be reviewed in 24 hours and approved if it doesn't violate the rules.

Not "many". A subset of academic surgical residencies require it. Others allow/support it. But it's also not a secret. If you just want to be a practicing general surgeon (or basically any subspecialty besides pediatrics or surf onc), it's not necessary.

Last I saw MGMA had general surgery at 440k a year with private practice in my region.

Can you start your own practice after residency?


Sweet_Mixture_6720

That’s a very serious undertaking. I’m not the person to give advice on it. Would definitely be easier to find a partner track job somewhere or take over an existing practice in a smaller town.

Thank you
