    im in it now, very easy going, great experience with difficult patients. Dr. Scott is the guy you'll be dealing with to set up your next few rotations in Baltimore, and he's awesome. The rotation itself is pretty easy.

    Hi there, would you mind answering a few questions. I was told today I was going to North Baltimore Center for Family med. Could you tell me what rotation are you doing there? and where? Is this a green book rotation? is this part of the Sheppard Pratt Medical System...?

    Be really careful about the area you choose to live in... parts of baltimore (the ones with the flashing blue lights/cameras) are not safe. Stay close to the inner harbor. I've had many friends stay at the marylander - but you'll probably have to get a parking pass on top of rent. I lived in ridgely's delight, but it's awkward parking and my car got broken in to a couple times. Good luck.

    I have heard about the bad parts of baltimore, so my search have been in the areas of: inner harbor (like NicSTX suggested), federal hill, fells point (away from patterson park), seton hill, mt vernon areas also. I also noticed that parking is a hassle, a lot of off-street parking where cars can get broken into, so gotta check for a car garage near by, which also doesn't guarentee complete safety. There's a website where you can google the address of the place you'd like to stay and it shows you all the crime that has happened in that area for the past few months (crimebaltimore.com).

    hey guys, im finishing up NBC now, like i said, its very chill very laid back, yes there are 2 orientations you will have. 1 with Dr. Scott, he's the director of the Bmore sites, and the 2nd at the actual center on your first day. LIVING...be weary i live 3 blocks from inner harbor. I have a lot of friends who live in Marylander, its good, its cheap, and right next to Union memorial hosp, and they have 3 month leases. Federal hill and fells point are decent areas to live, but you should come and check the spot out before you commit to anything, cuz there are some messed up places here, and parking is always an issue in the city (im from NY so im used to it)
    THE ROTATION....like i said .... ITS VERY CHILLL, the staff is awesome, the Docs are good psychiatrists, very experienced, learn what youc an but much isnt expected of you, its a good rotation to "get your feet wet", as Dr. Scott will telll you, but doesnt mean you screw around, take it seriously, your still getting a grade that is part of your GPA (which matters now). any other questions, hollaaaa
