Thank you

Hi Sara, I don't have any research in psych or any publications. I completed all my rotations in the US including 10 weeks of adult and child psychiatry. I've also been volunteering at a psychiatric hospital near my home for the past several month so hopefully that helps.

In terms of letters I have 4 total, with 2 being from the 2 psychiatrists I rotated under during med school.

Hi diverticulosis,

I just read your Step 3 pass post. I have some questions and needed help. Is there any way to contact you, I don't feel comfortable posting all my information on this forum. any email address? perhaps an email address you've used before to communicate with people from this forum?

I'll truly appreciate it.

Hi sam,

I'd be glad to help you. Unfortunately I don't have any email address that I use to communicate with on this forum. You can surely post some qs if you like in my Step 3 pass thread, and I'll give you whatever advice you need.
