Just wanted to give some feedback about this pysch rotation at the VA hospital. It's an inpatient locked ward which means there are many acutely ill patients. The place is very well organized and the computer system is extremely high tech. All patients records are on the computer, including the SOAP notes done by us the med students. H and P's are done by the residents. The rotation is VERY laid back and the residents and attendings are very approachable. I usually get there at 7:30 and leave anytime between 3:00 and 4:30. Weekends off and no on calls for students. I got to see an ECT today, which was interesting. They are done on Mon or Fri. So far, I have only had 3 pts sooo.. hopefully we will get more, b/c its pretty boring with no pts..oh and we are required to write 3 soaps a week on each of our patients so its not bad at all... Hope this was helpfull to anyone considering the VA hospital!!
