Hi all,

I'll be in Chicago for the few days of August 7-11 (flying out monday morning) to check out some teaching hospitals to start my internship year, as well as enjoy my birthday with my brother who has already started his rotations. Was wondering if there were any good Cars & Coffee type meets in the area. Noticed the Supercar Saturdays, but looks like I just missed the event by a week :( I'll have my camera with me as always to go exploring in the city, but would love to find a nice meet to see what kind of interesting cars are in the area as well. I'll keep doing my own online sleuthing, but thought some of you wonderful guys might have some insight as well!

Thank you, Zombie! I'd have loved the opportunity to make it out to Monterey again this year (especially to see the P1 GTR in person!) but I've got a few larger priorities at the moment ;)

@ Simon,
I'd love to do radiology, as I'm quite a fan of the photographic process, and I've been intrigued by x-rays since the time I broke my arm when I was 8 years old. I also have a knack for details and picking up on what shouldn't be there. That all said, it's the third hardest residency to achieve, with plastic surgery and dermatology being numbers one and two. I'm also interested in cardiology and pediatrics, as the heart is fascinating and children are much more honest and fun to deal with, haha.

My time in Chicago will be my internship year, or Post Graduate Year (PGY) 1, where I'll spend 6-12 weeks in all major fields of medicine, in a "Scrubs" sort of scenario. Towards the end of PGY1, I take a second board exam and begin interviewing for a residency position for PGY2. I should hopefully start my first rotation by mid September the latest, barring any hiccups in administrative paperwork filing.
