    Psych at st. elizabeth (which is in D.C)

    Hey all, just wrapping up my IM rotation at HHC (where I ran into Sree...hello!). It's pretty great there, and from what I hear, it spoils you for the other hospitals. The program is really set up to teach students a lot...between the lectures, conferences, and rounds upon rounds upon rounds, you can't help but sponge up some information. Oh yeah, and between doing all that, you follow anywhere from 2-4 patients a day (more or less), so you get lots of patient exposure, too. Everyone is very approachable, and I definitely didn't get the typical "med students are lower than dirt" treatment. In fact, most of the housestaff, attendings, and directors seem really eager to teach.

    It's a pretty varied experience...out of a 10 block rotation (each block is 10 days), 1 block is spent in ICU, another on Night Float, and the rest of the time is on the General Medical Floor (GMF). So you pretty much get the spectrum of the IM experience.

    Um, that's about it for a very general overview...hope it helped!

    There are electives at Harbor Hospital, Baltimore

    There is an Addiction Psychiatry elective at Northport VA Hospital, NY

    Research electives in Caribbean schools do not count toward the required number of weeks in clinicals needed for state licensing. So, you're better off doing research on your own time.

    IM at Harbor

    Honibrown's experience matched mine very well. I would reccomend this rotation to a friend. I just finished in December and am doing a Gastro elective mostly outpatient but through Harbor. Can't emphasize how approachable almost everyone is and how there is a great enviorment that fosters learning, educated disagreement and discussion. Most of the interns and I were on a first name basis, although do not just assume this if you rotate here. I have heard not all IM programs have one rotate in the ICU, which was a great experience. Another thing that no one has mentioned is that the student schedule is student created (as of now). So get to know well the person that you elect and they can help you out so much with weekend call, days off etc. I worked almost every weekend before I figured this out and needed some time off towards the end which was accomodated by my fellow student. Also notable about the rotation is the genereally you must come back for a Sub - I to get a letter of rec. Some people may bet one on their first rotation, but I think this is the usual course. - JP
