Thread: Recent Accident to My Son

    This might have been mentioned before, but I can't remember, how long is a residency?
    If he gets a job offer from CMS and thinks he'd really like that position, it may be worth discussing with them a 'leave of absence' after the two year commitment, to complete the residency. I don't know, but maybe they would like to have their employee complete a residency at some point. It seems it would enhance his skills for the employer.
    I'm sure Brian will get other interviews so he can look at other options.
    Best wishes to Brian with job search.

    I think his answer was good. If he had applied to residency, then they would have assumed he was applying to their job as a fall-back.

    Great news overall. Congrats!

    I agree. Not having applied for residency means he's available to take their job.
    This sounds like a great opportunity that will include Federal Government employee benefits. Wish Brian all the best.

    triumph - Residency length varies by specialty. Internal Medicine is 3 years. Neurosurgery is 7 years. Fellowship training after residency usually adds another year.

    Brian is still waiting to hear back from the doctor at the Medicare Services Innovation Center. A few days after his interview at CMS Brian sent an email and told them that he had met with his adviser at Hopkins and had decided not to apply for residency. Hopefully he'll hear something soon. Brian has a meeting next week with a dean at the medical school to discuss his options. Residency might get put back on the table if he doesn't hear back from CMS.

    The manager at the Medicare Services Innovation Center who Brian interviewed with four weeks ago informed Brian that after reviewing their budgets they determined that the project did not have sufficient funding to hire additional people. She said that she would forward Brian's resume to other groups at the Innovation Center for their consideration. The day after that email two managers from the Innovation Center contacted Brian and setup a time for a telephone interview. The telephone interview happened yesterday. Hopefully he'll hear back from them.

    Brian had an interview with a manager at the Medicare Innovation Center in Baltimore. Brian thinks, based on what was said during the interview, that they're going to offer him a job.
