    Clinical Experience ??

    Advertisements



    HI,

    I read many posts but I can't seem to find anything about HOW the rotations are.

    1. are students placed in groups of 2,3,4... from the same school, or are we on our own?

    2. do you go to the hospital every day, like a normal job during the rotation?

    3. are the doctors helpful, scary, approachable in general/or specific sites?

    4. Letters of recommendation: how easy/hard is it to get them? can you ask ANY doctor that you worked with?

    5. do we take a SHELF after each rotation? how do we schedule them?

    6. in regards to all the paperwork we are supposed to have to start rotations (MMR, HIV, drug test, background check ..etc.), at the beginning of 5th semester we were told that all those papers are ONLY COLLECTED once, before 5th semester and they will stay in our file for the rest of the rotations. Is this true?

    7. Do you really learn most skills in clinicals?

    THANK YOU

    I know that I have posted at least 2 reviews of my rotations, one for surgery, another for IM, I can't remember if I did for any other ones. A quick search of the forum can answer some/most of your questions.
