Just though I'd let everyone know about a recent development at the Miami rotations. A bunch of us started internal medicine on Sept. 12, and were assigned one of a number of hospitals or clinics, either in patient or outpatient (for either two weeks or a month, and after that we'd change). So today we had orientation at one of the hospitals, and were informed that this hospital has decided to stop issuing AUC students ID badges, because of some paperwork issue (some contract not signed, or whatever - they didn't give details).
So the students assigned to this hospital (myself included) were pulled from it and reassigned to another location until the situation can be "handled". So we got today and tomorrow off. Don't get me wrong, I really like the rotations here in Miami (two days worth so far), but AUC needs to get its act together. Since I left the island, things have gotten worse. Dealing with MEAS is a nightmare. I have never seen such incompetence in my life. And this "glitch" (what they called it) is the last straw. At this point, I don't think I can recommend that students come to AUC, and would suggest they look into SGU or Ross or Saba instead. (On a side note, Ross students also rotate at this hospital, and they were unaffected by said "glitch").
