    OBGYN Wycoff

    Advertisements



    I always feel that one thread per rotation is sufficient (instead of a million asking the same questions).

    Here is my experience in my OBGYN rotations at wycoff
    -I was 1/50ish students, I think there were a total of 6 AUA students out of that bunch, one of which was thrown out because he got caught outside of the hospital wearing scrubs. *mental note to keep in mind*
    -They split us into 6 groups of roughly 8 people. Sono, labor and delivery, ob clinic, gyn clinic (twice) and OR. My group had 2 people drop out and has plenty of slackers, so I actually get to see a lot. Enough to know OBGYN is not my thing, but whatever.
    -Daily Schedule: Sign in at 630AM, see assigned patient (usually with one or two other students - if the others are slackers the pt is all yours, on that note I usually see a patient alone...) Rounds at 8 and then you separate to your respective groups and etc. Normal sign out is at 4.

    The hospital is not ghetto, it's nicer than the last two I've rotated at. I've taken the L train in and home without any problems and think the residents and attendings teach very well in all honesty.

    The downside to this rotation is that there are too many students. I learned nothing in Sono, and OR is only good if there are enough cases for the group to see. There's currently a subI stealing all the cases so only 2 people in my group have scrubbed into cases. They don't remember who you are and the slackers can pretty much get away with anything as long as they sign in and out (a ploy to try to keep track of the many students... doesn't work when people sign other people in).

    I heard that OBGYN in chicago was a lot tougher and better, and I would probably have done it there if wyckoff wasn't the only non spanish speaking green we had. Rumor has it RUMC will be getting OBGYN soon, I would have even opted for that, but the rotation does serve its purpose.

    I mainly have an issue with the type of people I'm forced to work with, students, not residents, and their lack of work ethic -- all us AUA students btw seem to be the most sane... I have to say this is the first time I've been ready to duck out of a rotation asap without looking back. Maybe it's just because I don't like gyn .

    Hope this helped

    Hey, thanks so much Nicstx! I have been wondering how easy it would be to get assigned to Whycoff as I know a lot of the rotations there are green. As it is I plan on doing my residency in OBGYN in order to one day do my fellowship in Reproductive Endo. Do you know if Whycoff is easy to get assigned to?

    Were the other students all from Ross?

    DrSS - obgyn and peds at wyckoff are the hardest to get in to. I signed up for this rotation back in jan after a lot of bickering... these are currently the two best green's we have.

    Cav - most are from ross, but other schools have roughly the same amount of students there as aua.
