    All of the students here on Nevis and I'm sure some that are in clinicals now would love to here from some students already in clinicals. So if you are there now or have already finished please post some of your experiences here about Jackson Park.

    Well....

    I guess its pretty obvious that either no one in clinicals still looks at ValueMD or they are just too busy to bother. Oh well, eventually someone will comment...

    umm

    Jackson Park is hit or miss for rotations. Some are good, some are not. I think most of electives are good and you learn a lot. Things could have changed however in the past couple of years. I was there from from 2004-2005.

    I'm from Ross and recently finished a lot of my rotations at Jackson Park. It is an inner city hospital in a pretty bad neighborhood in southside Chicago. For the most part, rotations depend on what you put into them. The Attendings have seen people from most of the foreign med schools so they have seen excellent, hard-working students and complete slackers. They will ask you to do something but if you don't they won't be on your back.

    I personally thought it was great to train at an inner city facility because I got to do a lot. I also talked to a lot of people to try and set up rotations where I would be directly responsible for patient care and would be doing a lot (not just showing up, writing one H&P, and then leaving). One drawback is there are too many students there...too much hanging out in the lounges, fighting for charts, etc.

    Some of the better rotations include IM with Dr. K, Neuro, FM (with Dr. O, Dr. Q, and Dr. K), ER, ID, Nephro (with Dr. M). PM me if you need more info

    Jackson Park

    The hospital itself is a typical, inner city hospital, with lots of poor and indigent patients, in a very poor part of the city.
