park slope is a better place to live, but much more expensive. alot of people live in bayridge which is nice too. Great korean resturant down there! I did my IM rotation at Lutheran as well as most of my other rotations. I think i had a really good experience there that I even did my medicine sub-internship there. You get a $350 meal card, locker, white coat. Morning report is at 7am where you go over the admissions from overnight. Check on your patients from 8am to 10am. Rounds at 10am to 12pm where you will present your presentation to the attending and team. Noon conference at 12pm to 1pm. Lunch at 1-2pm, 2pm-whenever... follow-up on any labs or imaging you had ordered in the morning, follow-up on any consults, check on your patient.. then sign out with your intern/resident. You do have to write a daily progress note on your patient. As a 3rd year student, what you want to get out of ure IM rotation is the ability to gather information, present it to your intern/resident/attending, and start to learn how to come up with a plan. They know your new and just starting out... so don't be afraid at all to ask alot of questions. Hope this helps, i actually enjoyed my rotations at lutheran. compared to the other hospitals i had to work at in brooklyn and queens, i thought lutheran was the best community hospital of all of them. And even tho im a foreign medical student, and did my rotations at smaller hospitals like lutheran, i managed to get an IM residency program at WVU.
