    Heading to Stepping Hill in May' 06

    if there is anyone out there who has any experience with this hospital, please let me know , As a will be heading there soon. I have alread heard from others in London @ Whipps Cross who claims their experiences are better than those of their friends who were rotating in the U.S. Hospitals for Cores (i.e. IM in Michigan=50 patients vs. IM in the UK=150+ patients). please respond if you have any comparisons to make.

    I don't really care about the LORs. The grades and the experience outweighs the LORs anyway. Just heard from a student who is there and he said his LORs were excellent. So that's not at the apex of my concern.

    can somebody tell me when the rotations begin in the UK - more specifically for Whipps Cross in september since I am planning on starting in the Fall this year? The clinical co-ordinator has said that first week of september is most likely but I was wondering if anybody could be more accurate?

    I met a 4th year at Wyckoff that did her whole 3rd year at Stepping Hill. I've asked her to share her experiences. If you like send me a PM with your email and I'll pass it along to her.

    Hello guys,

    I made it here a few days ago to Stepping Hill. I gotta say that this place rocks. The rotations here are very hands on. Already, I have been able to perform endoscopies on GI patients and other procedures. from what I have heard from some of my friend in ATL and MI some may or may not begetting this type of action. Also, there is a Mass Assessment Unit here that allow students on all levels to have full lightly-supervised autonomy when dealing with patients. This is the best unit to learn your real life medical skills!!! At this Hospital, there is no scut, a lot of pimpin', and tons of opportunities. I feel I have made the best decision to come here. The profs here are very approachable, and love to teach. This is definitely, not a place that SMU students should consider as a last option. As a matter of fact, one should be considered to be so luck to have the opportunity to rotate in the UK IMHO.....

    Is Stepping Hills hospital situated in London and if not how far it is from London? I am seriously considering UK for my 3rd year as my spouse might be working ther for next 2 years. Any input about UK hospitals will be greatly appreciated. I have heard about having difficulty in getting all green rotations in America in timely manner so I would like to know about implications of doing the cores in the UK if someone chooses to avoid the delays here.Thanks.

    I have found out that only Whipps Cross is situated in London and is a big hospital on 40acres. They are renovating and building in near future.
    About Barnsley ,their site says its one of the top rated NHS(national health services) hospital in the U.K. and is associated with University of Sheffield. From what I understand all 3 are teaching hospitals.
    Does anybody know whether rotations are available on rolling basis or there is a fixed schedule to start in a year like in fall of every year?
