They actually chose for me to interview for CVICU and although it wasn't what I wanted, I was grateful to have been interview for any of the specialties.
As far as I know the residency is also a year. And even if it weren't, normally they want you to stay on a unit for a year before transferring. I believe Grady also has a contract of like two years or so, so leaving the facility wouldn't be an option either. Had I gotten an ICU offer I most likely wouldn't have wanted to leave anyway. But that pay and how hard you work for it just doesn't add up for someone like me. Were I a young, bright eyed and bushy tailed person...perhaps.
I hope you get what you asked for and wish you the best!
