    Travel involved for clinicals

    Advertisements



    I'm a student who is looking at begining in the MD program this sept 07 and have a question involving the clinical years. Although it is a simple question I can't seem to locate the answer.

    For your clinical years do most people tend to stay in the same place during these years? Meaning, are you constantly traveling to places and have no real "home base" at a particiular location in the US? I know there is some travel involved during these years I'm just confused whether people are expected to live out of a suit case during these years.

    thanks

    Everybody's experience is different. It mostly depends on whether or not you want your rotations to be all-greenbook or not. If you don't care about greenbook, it's very easy to have all your rotations in one place for 2yrs (eg. Chicago, Greeley).

    I did care about greenbook, so I ended up moving every 4-5mths. It's not as bad as it sounds; I got lots of experience in different hospitals.
