    Waiting for rotations

    Advertisements



    I was just wondering if anyone else has been asked to wait until July to start their rotations......and if you are waiting, what are you planning on doing until you start.

    Are you only able to rotate in a certain state/city? I am supposed to be calling tomorrow to set up rotations but I can pretty much be whereever there are available greenbooks. Now I am a bit nervous.

    I'm also looking into any state with greenbook rotations except Chicago and Atlanta, which basically leave me with NYC, Michigan, Baltimore and DC area.

    No need to be nervous, from what I've been told, we will have to wait so just hang in there. Stay in contact with your coordinator.

    Did you just start working towards your rotations? I've been waiting for a while now.

    This is disturbing, I thought that AUA was the best back-up plan for those who couldn't get into SGU, AUC, Ross and Saba.

    Is this happening alot? Will you finish in time to graduate with your class?

    I a willing to go to any state to do a greenbook rotation. I was told by a fellow student that Jackson Park usually has openings for Family and that I should go there first.

    I've been battling with the FA dept to get my loan since Nov and finally they ironed things out. My coordinator (TL) is very hard to get ahold of and I've called and left quite a few messages with no callback. I have a list of the hospitals and what greenbook rotations that are available so she can place me as soon as possible. I can't wait until July as my financial situation makes that impossible.

    When you say you've been "working towards your rotations" what does that mean? Does it involve more than calling and going through the options with your coordinator? I admit I am getting very frustrated as the longer this takes the less likely I am to make Match by 2011.

    Is it a particular core that's in short supply, like peds at Ross and AUC?

    How long should we expect to be waiting? I am taking step 1 in March. Are we talking about 2 months? 4 months? 6 months? I want all green rotations.

    My friend took her exam in december and started a competitive green IM rotation in jan... I don't know why they're telling you that you have to wait until july.

    good luck.

    Yay! Thank you! I tried e-mailing them but the email on the website for the clinical dept doesn't exist and it bounced back...

    I know people who have taken the exam recently, and have received their score within the last month...and they've been told that nothing is available until end of April/May.
