    Electives at Dekalb in ATL

    Advertisements



    Wanted to see if anyone had any input for electives offered through Dekalb medical center in Atlanta. Primarily I am curious to find out about neurology and EM. Thanks.

    Hi! I did ER at Dekalb. It was a great rotation. It is NOT a trauma hospital, but you get to see a fair amount, and you get to do procedures (if your preceptor allows) like suturing/stapling and help with central and peripheral lines. As with anywhere... you get what you put into it... if you show your preceptor you want to learn and you want to do procedures, they'll take an interest in teaching you. If not, you probably won't have that great of a rotation. The supporting staff (nurses) are very nice if you are nice to them and show that you're willing to help them out some too.

    Dekalb runs a shift ER... so whatever the schedule of your precessing doctor is your schedule, they usually are about 9-10 hour shifts about 4 days a week, sometimes weekends (depending on the shift your preceptor has). I learned a lot. Liked the rotation a lot.

    One thing... I guess the schedule for the ER rotation at Dekalb is only set up 4 weeks prior to the start date, and there are certain start dates. So you may or may not get the rotation... talk to your coordinator.
