    Waiting....Who's waiting with me??

    Advertisements



    I sent in my paperwork last week to my coordinator, and today she emailed me saying that I was on a waitlist to begin (I imagine with hundreds of other people). How long did it take you to get scheduled after sending in your paperwork? What did you do while you waited? And for those who are in Puerto Rico, how're the rotations there? I expect that all of the patient interaction is in Spanish but what about class/presentations? My Spanish is decent, but I'm not fluent.

    expect to wait a few months. When I started clinicals in september, I had to wait about 1 month to start.

    People who have taken the step after me and applied later had to wait at least 2 months. I know this one kid who has a rotation scheduled for november 2010, thats how far ahead they are going to schedule people.

    The situation sucks right now, the school says they are going to make changes to "get more hospitals", i'll believe it when I see it.

    do some research because when you interview, program directors are going to ask why you didn't do anything for 3 months
