    Clinical Rotation Question

    Advertisements
    Our members don't see this ad
    Hey guys/gals..

    When Basic Sciences are completed at AUA, and then u head off to an affiliated US hospital for clinicals, can you/do you complete all rotations (FM, IM, OB-GYN, Surg, etc) in one city, or should one plan on moving around for these? How is this determined? Do you get a fair shot at where you choose, or is it just based upon availablility?

    Any feedback would be great

    I wanted Chicago, got Chicago, and I'm doing my entire 3rd year here back-to-back rotations except for the month of December off. The more flexible you are, the easier it is to start rotations and have minimal down time.

    at least in regards to core rotations..
    dr. pb, the vp for academic development and executive dean of clinical sciences stated that..
    no we do not have the option of turning down a core rotation.

    in other words, it's based on availability.
    if there are two open slots then you are presented with the option between the two..
    but if there's only one spot then that's what it is.

    Chicago is run a little differently. Once you get in the system here, you can most likely stay. And with the exception of your first core placement here, you can pretty much pick and choose your preceptors. JPH does all the placements in-house for their cores, not AUA. So you'll have a little more latitude here given the new policies that MP spoke about above. Downside (if you view it that way), the only green rotation here is FM. The rest are blue.
