    Housing for Wyckoff Rotations

    Advertisements



    Hello-

    I am starting a core rotation at Wyckoff on Feb. 28, and looking for an apartment in Brooklyn. I am open to subletting a place, or would be willing to share a 2 br. If you know of anyone who is leaving their place around this time please let me know! Also, if you are starting in Brooklyn and looking for a roomate, I am interested! I am clean, quiet, fun, and very considerate. It would be wonderful to split rent with someone similar!

    Please reply to this thread, or call, if you have any info on sublets or would like to speak about splitting an apartment! THANKS!

    -Jenna

    I would suggest taking your number off and telling people that you will PM it to them. What core did you get?

    Thanks for the recommendation. I got Surgery core at Wyckoff... not thrilled because it's not "green", but it is AOA accredited (rather than ACGME), and I was rather sick of waiting on a spot, so I'm in. I've heard from others who have already done Surgery there, and they've all been very impressed/satisfied with the experience. Do you have any experience at Wyckoff?

    I start that very same date doing IM at Interfaith. If anyone has any leads on studios for $900 or less or I'm willing to share too if I get a lock and key to my bedroom, please let me know.

    I'll let you know if I hear of anything- looks like we're both in the same situation. Housing is fairly pricey (from what I've seen on Craigslist), but I'll keep you in the loop if I find anything interesting....

    If you want to go into surgery, DO NOT DO YOUR SURGERY ROTATION AT WYCKOFF. There are about 60 students in the rotation at a time. You have to fight to scrub in and most of your time is spent sitting around, or sitting in on lectures (which is fine). When you do scrub in, you're acting as a tech, sponging and retracting. I did not do my surgery rotation her but have a bunch of friends who did.

    I have been at wyckoff since March 2010 and have done all of my core rotations except psych and FP - and about 12 weeks of electives here. If you have any questions regarding the hospital, rotations, housing areas, apartments nearby (i live quite close to the hospital) - feel free to PM me at skvg 2016 at gmail (no spaces)

    yes i can agree to that post - you do a lot of scut work, get to learn almost nothing, the attending Dr. C is very good though in terms of his lectures .. but he yells constantly as if there is no calm switch in his head. The residents .. some are nice , some just treat you like crap and dont count you for anything. in the OR , you observe or at the most if youre scrubbed in - you hold back a retractor or do suction .. if you're lucky, you may get to staple at the end. thats about it.

    So the surgery rotation at Wyckoff is not green??? Will this create a problem later when we apply for our residencies? I am scheduled to do my surgery rotation there and I don't understand how the school would put us in the slot if it is a core and not green. Do you know if students have had problems later because of this?
