    Thoughts on Surgery, OBGYN, Peds cores

    Advertisements



    Hi,

    I have been searching through the forum for thoughts and feelings on those three cores, i came across some older postings, which mentioned hospitals (Michigan) that we are not currently affiliated with. Any recent great experiences, or recommendations for these cores? Particularly, in Maryland?

    I did OBGYN at Harbor Hospital in Bmore, and I really liked it. They only take about 3-4 students at a time, and you work with an attending. You also take call once a week, have OR days and clinic days. It's not very intense and everyone is very friendly. I would recommend it. Other than that I only did IM at Harbor, some electives and Psych at Sheppard Pratt, all of which I really liked. I recommend staying away from Wyckoff if you can. But I am finished with all my rotations so now I am just waiting for the match

    Thank you! I will look into those, do you know if they are greenbook at Harbor? What about Peds and Surgery, where did you do those, and did you like?

    I have done 3 cores at Wyckoff and I too recommend, if you can, to stay away. There are way too many students and you will only learn if you spend time in the library.

    Richmond University Medical Center (RUMC) in Staten Island has excellent cores in IM, Surgery, OB, Psych, and Peds as well as amazing electives. All greenbook. I did all cores there except OB and FM as well as the majority of my electives and I highly recommend that location. IMHO it is the best site we have in NY and probably one of the best we have overall. However, RUMC is very popular and has long waiting lists so throw your hat in the pile early and hopefully you will get lucky.

    Oh btw in addition to the long AUA waiting list, SGU has now infiltrated RUMC, thereby decreasing your chances and making it even more important to get your name in the pool early if you wish to stay in the NY area for rotations. Other than that, colleagues have praised OB and IM (and Sub-Is) at Harbor, Surgery and Peds in Michigan, and I've heard that the rotation(s) in Louisiana and Ohio are good additions.
    I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

    Did Fam at LSU-Lafayette...solid rotation. I did IM and some electives at Harbor, also great site. I did OB in Atlanta which was a waste of time and thankfully we no longer rotate there. I did Surgery, Psych and Peds at RUMC and as others stated, its probably one of the best sites to do everything in.

    Electives I did here and there with away electives at UConn and UNC.

    Wyckoff - OB

    Ok so yes in general I agree to stay away from Wyckoff as the amount of students is ridiculous. However, I am currently doing OB there and honestly enjoying it. AUA students are outsourced to local clinics for your gyn clinic stuff. You still Labor and delivery in the hospital for a 12 hour weekend shift and 3 night calls, which is plenty for someone not wanting to do OB-G. I've scrubbed in for C-section, performed(not watched) paps, performed(not watched) dilatation and curettages, learn a boat load about STD. Lectures are hit n miss, I had some wasteful afternoons. My attending in my gyn clinic is a Ross grad and she is amazing. She teaches everything, knows everything, super nice, lets you do whatever procedures you are interested in doing. I also get dibs on scrubbing in for OR GYN surgeries on fridays because my attendings are there. (This means I over ride the other GYN students who are on the OR week for fridays) Im 2 weeks in and learned/did a lot. As for the other rotations at wyckoff I heard peds is decent, but everything else is a ton of hours and you learn/do minimal.

    Hey, how exactly do I get on the waiting list, is it through school or by contacting the hospital?

    Thank you so much for the feedback, is it possible to schedule wyckoff through a hospital coordinator instead of school?
