    Interfaith electives

    Advertisements



    Any feedback on Endocrinology, Geriatrics or Rheumatology electives at Interfaith would be much appreciated

    Also, any advise on housing would be great...like which neighborhoods are safe and not too far from hospital?

    Thanks!!

    I'm at Interfaith right now. I heard that Rheumatology is only 2 - 3 days a week. I haven't heard much about the other 2 you mentioned. As for neighborhoods, I live in an area called Bay Ridge. It's a very nice area with plenty of places to shop at, restaurants, bars and pubs, and a grocery store. It's about an hour subway commute to the hospital but only 25 min. driving. I only drive ever so often because gas is >$4/gallon here.

    Thanks for the feedback, Shayloure!

    I'm not familiar with Brooklyn so I'm wondering about your thoughts on living in neighborhoods around Interfaith?? Also, which rotation are you doing there now? Are there any core rotations offered or are they all electives? Thanks in advance for your time!

    I'm doing IM. Right now you can do IM and pediatrics there, in addition to the slew of electives they have. As for the neighborhoods around the hospital, it all depends on what you're used too and what you're willing to pay for. The hospital is in Bed-stuy. Now Bed-stuy has some nice areas as you get further away from what is considered "the heart" of Bed-stuy, but honestly, coming from where I'm from, I had to find something that was what I was used to. I'm paying $900 for my studio, given, I am subleasing and I don't have cable. But I don't mind because it forces me to do step 2 studying . My best advice is to keep looking on craigslist, whatever you find map it, use google earth or something to try to see it, but no matter where you end up, you still have to be careful.

    Endocrine is a chill rotation. the Attendings Dr. Deribe. Monday Tuesday mornings two students present an endocrine disorder for 10-20 minutes like hypoglycemia or adrenal hyperplasia which takes 1-1.5 hours, then you meet in the afternoon to round on consults in the library. wednesday is when you follow the interns, but usually only one person comes in that day, thursday mornings you go to a clinic til 12 thats 10 blocks away, and afternoon rounding on consults. friday is diabetes pts only at clinic in the morning and rounding in afternoon.
